Zero-Credit Registration (Graduate)

Classified graduate students may include in the program for the academic term one or more zero credit registrations.

  • Often a journal club or colloquia registration may be for zero credit.
  • Students may be preparing for language or degree examination(s), or may have taken the required total number of credits of Thesis or Dissertation Research within the ordinary time period to complete all degree requirements.
  • Students may be completing the requirements for coursework that was initiated during a previous academic term.

Some zero-credit registrations, coded by 5950 and 6950, are each permitted no more than twice during a degree program. Any registration, even if for zero credits, enables students to have access to the academic resources of the University.
