Program fee students must register for REGN 9999 in all three terms. REGN 9999 is listed in the Academic Timetable Subject Listings as "Registration Course—Graduate".
Once a program fee student in a thesis program has completed all course requirements, they must continue to register for every term as a continuing student, until all degree requirements have been submitted and approved by the Faculty of Graduate Studies.
A continuing program fee student must register for REGN 9999 and for either Comprehensives, Thesis, Seminar, Special Project, or Internship:
- Master Thesis: CRN + (Subject) + 9000, e.g. BIOL 9000, or
- PhD Comprehensives: CRN + PHDP 8000 or
- PhD Thesis: CRN + (Subject) + 9530, eg BIOL 9530.
The CRN for the theses can be found in the course directories for each department on Web for Students.
Per course fee students who write a thesis: SLWK, ARCH and MLIS can register as full-time thesis continuing students once they've completed all their required course work and at this stage in their program they must register for REGN 9999 every term.
REGN 9999 is listed in the Academic Timetable Subject Listings as "Registration Course—Graduate".
