Doctoral Pre-Thesis Credits
Credits: 1-18 credits (max 60 credits)
Prerequisites: Maximum 18 credits per semester or summer; doctoral student who has not passed the preliminary oral examination
These credits are available for doctoral students who have not yet passed their preliminary oral examination but need to be registered in the Graduate School to meet requirements of agencies or departments outside the Graduate School (i.e. loan agencies). Doctoral pre-thesis credits are not graded.
Note: Registration for doctoral pre-thesis credits cannot be used to meet any Graduate School degree requirements other than to maintain active status (refer to Registration Requirements).
