Please check the academic calendar website to ascertain registration dates.
Payment Of Fees: Registration will not be permitted unless your account balance is zero. Bills are sent out monthly. If you register after the initial billing date or do not receive a bill it is your responsibility to get a copy of your bill from the Cashier's Office. Failure to receive a bill does not excuse students from payment deadlines. For further information, contact the Cashier's Office at 608-342-1211.
Continuing graduate students register online through the academic tools self-service area.
New students or students returning after an absence of one or more semesters cannot register online; they must complete the graduate registration forms (registration form, background form and residency form). Please complete all three forms - these forms are interactive - simply fill in the information - hit the 'submit form' button near the bottom of each form - follow the email instructions. The system will email the completed forms to the School of Graduate Studies Office for completion. The School of Graduate Studies Office will respond to all three emails letting the student know they arrived. The School of Graduate Studies Office will register you for classes.
Effective spring 2013: For enrollment certification purposes, nine credits shall constitute a standard, full load during the fall and spring semesters and five credits during the summer session. Graduate students may enroll in undergraduate courses as part of their nine-credit minimum, but at least six credits must be at the graduate level. Six credits shall constitute a full-time load during the fall and spring semesters for students receiving an assistantship and for students enrolled in six or more credits of practicum. Three credits of a capstone experience, such as Thesis, Seminar Paper Research, or Education or Capstone Project, shall also constitute a full-time load. This three-credit option cannot be applied for more than two semesters. Full-time status for other purposes, such as financial aid, may be defined differently.
Overloads: Graduate students are allowed to register for six credits during the summer sessions and nine credits during the fall/spring semesters. In order to register for additional credits, (up to 9 credits during summer sessions and 12 credits during fall/spring semesters), students must have approval of their advisors. Approval may be sent to the School of Graduate Studies Office by mail, fax, e-mail, or in person. Permission must include the student's name, semester, and the amount of credits allowed. A graduate student who wishes to add more than 9 credits for the summer session or 12 credits for the fall/spring semesters will need the additional approval (beyond the advisor's approval) of Dr. David Van Buren the dean of the School of Graduate Studies.
