· Graduation term: You must register for a minimum of 3 hours of graduate credit during the semester you complete degree requirements even if you were registered for the two previous semesters.
Falling out of compliance will COST YOU MONEY! Penalties are explained in the policy. Please become familiar with the enrollment policy in the Graduate Bulletin at http://www.uga.edu/gradschool/academics/registration.html
This policy affects all graduate students except the following:
1. University employees on the Tuition Assistance Program (TAP) and
2. Students in non-degree status
TAP and Non-Degree Students: You will lose registration eligibility by being non-enrolled for three consecutive terms. In other words, you can miss two terms in a row, but you must register the third term or lose registration eligibility. Persons in TAP and Non-degree categories who have lost the ability to register must apply for readmission to the Graduate School and pay the applicable application fee if they wish to continue taking courses, but will not be assessed a penalty fee. REMEMBER THAT ONLY NINE HOURS taken during non-degree status can be used toward a degree program later.
NOTE REGARDING WITHDRAWAL FROM COURSES: Students CANNOT use a request for a leave of absence from graduate enrollment to withdraw from courses. Students must initiate withdrawal in the OASIS system, subject to the deadlines established by the University. Withdrawal policies and dates are available at <UrlBlockedError.aspx> http://www.reg.uga.edu/policies/withdrawals
A semester during which a student withdraws from courses is counted as an enrolled semester. Students who withdraw after drop/add are not penalized by the Graduate Enrollment Policy.
