GRAD 999

GRAD 999 is a zero-credit, zero-tuition registration option intended for graduate students who have completed all coursework and (if applicable) thesis credit requirements, and who must maintain registration to meet the registration requirement. However, GRAD 999 cannot be used to meet any other requirements of the University or external agencies. The student must also have his or her own health insurance because payment of the Student Services Fee does not render the students eligible to buy University-sponsored health insurance. To register for GRAD 999, students are advised to register online to identify any holds or requirements not met for the class.
