Maintaining matriculation statuses in the Caspersen School of Graduate Studies have been converted to continuous registration effective with the fall 2012 semester. Please carefully review the instruction summary listed below and the individual description of each status prior to registration. While all of the categories and statuses remain the same, course numbers for continuous registration have been changed.  The course department is still “G”. Also note that the new continuous registration statuses now have course credits.  However, the tuition charge for each status will remain a flat rate (Students will not be charged a per credit hour tuition rate for continuous registration.)

If you need assistance on selecting the proper continuous registration status please consult with one of the following: 1) Your academic advisor, or 2)  The Associate Dean of the Caspersen School.
