Request certification of full-time graduate status


  1. If doctoral: My Application for Admission to Candidacy has been approved by Graduate Studies.
  2. If master's: I am in Option I and my Memorandum of Courses has been approved by Graduate Studies.
I understand that each request/certification is for one specific term/semester, so full-time certification for additional terms will require one request per term, subject to eligibility limits.
If I have questions about this, I will refer to my offer/contract letter and contact my department if needed.
