Students who have been matriculated in the SOPP must maintain continuous registration until all degree requirements have been met. Requirements would include coursework, practica, dissertation, internship, and any portfolio requirements. At a minimum, students must be registered for one hour of graduate course credit per academic term. Students must also be registered for at least one hour of graduate credit during the semester in which the oral defense of the dissertation is conducted.
It is the student's responsibility to remain informed of the university's academic calendar, as well as all deadlines and procedures for registering and payment of tuition. Students who fail to maintain continuous registration for any semester may be dismissed from the program.
