Students may submit the Request for Terminal Graduate Registration (TGR) Status (pdf) in order to be considered for Terminal Graduate Registration (TGR). Students granted TGR status must enroll each term in the 801 (for master's and Engineer students) or 802 (for doctoral students) course in their department for zero units, in the appropriate section for their adviser.
An 'N' grade signifying satisfactory progress must be received each quarter to maintain registration privileges.
An 'N-' grade indicates unsatisfactory progress. The first 'N-' grade constitutes a warning. A second consecutive 'N-' grade normally causes the department to deny the student further registration until a written plan for completion of degree requirements has been approved by the department. Subsequent 'N-' grades are grounds for dismissal from the program.
TGR students register at a special tuition rate. Within certain restrictions, TGR students may enroll in additional courses at the applicable unit rate.
