Registration Procedures

New and continuing students begin their registration at the School of Graduate Studies (SGS) with payment of fees. (NB: Continuing students cannot register if they have any outstanding debts from the previous year, e.g., fees, library fines, bookstore debts, Health Service charges, etc., or if the terminal date for completion of the degree has expired.) Students then proceed to the Associate Chair, Graduate,  of the Department who, in consultation with the student, enters the courses to be taken on a registration form. The signed form is then sent to the SGS for approval. Changes may still be made in a student's program, but such changes must be reported to the Graduate Coordinator. All changes and final enrolment must be completed by September 26.

For students in the Ph.D. program, registration covers a full calendar year, from September until the end of August of the following year. Students in the M.A. program who intend to engage in research, reading, and/or course work during the summer must register separately for the Summer Session. Forms for Summer Registration are available from the Graduate Coordinator in late April.

An extension may be permitted in Y, H, B and S courses. However, individual professors may with to follow the SGS ruling (i.e. submission of grades by May 11) and may, therefore, establish earlier deadlines for completion of work in their courses. For grading practices, consult the Calendar.



If a student has a problem with a course, he or she should first approach the instructor in the course. If the problem cannot be resolved at this stage, one should go to the Associate Chair, Graduate, who should also be consulted concerning a problem of more general nature. The next step is the Chair of the Department and then the Associate Dean, Division I, School of Graduate Studies. There is an appeals committe at SGS which is empowered to deal with every aspect of academic programs within SGS.
