Research-Phase Registrations

Students in programs requiring Thesis or Dissertation credits must complete the following:

  • Master’s students 6 credits of Thesis Research (5990) and
  • Ph.D. students 12 credits of Dissertation Research (6990).

When enrolling in research credits, the minimum registration for an academic term is one credit until the total credits are completed.  Once the research credit requirement is met, students are permitted to enroll for zero-credit research courses and maintain full-time status.  See Full-Time status definition for additional information.
