NOTES:

THES 919 is not available to students admitted Fall 2011 and onwards.

This Reduced-Fee Thesis was established for full-time, continuing doctoral students effective September 2003. In order to be eligible to register for this Reduced-Fee Thesis, the student must be in a non-cost recovery doctoral program, and must have been registered full-time (minimum of 9 course/thesis weights per term) in their current graduate program for a minimum of four Fall and/or Winter terms and have been assessed at least 18 units of fee index in each of those terms.

Effective September 2004, the Reduced-Fee Thesis was available for full-time, continuing thesis-based master’s students. In order to be eligible to register for this Reduced-Fee Thesis, the student must be in a non-cost recovery thesis-based master’s program, and must have been registered full-time (minimum of 9 course/thesis weights per term) in their current graduate program for a minimum of two Fall and/or Winter terms and have been assessed at least 18 units of fee index in each of those terms.

Spring and Summer term registrations may be used to calculate Thesis 919 eligibility, however the student must have been registered full-time (minimum of 6 course/thesis weights per term) in two consecutive Spring and Summer terms, [ie. registration in 6 course/thesis weights in a Spring term, plus registration in 6 course/thesis weights in the consecutive Summer Term is equivalent to a full-time registration (9 course/thesis weights) in one Fall or Winter term].

Students registered in a master’s thesis program who are transferring to a doctoral program may not have satisfied the eligibility requirements for registration in Thesis 919 in the doctoral program.
