Ph.D. students can discuss with their advisors individual courses available outside the discipline that may advance their research or professional goals. A University tuition agreement signed by the Deans of the university’s Graduate Schools fosters interdisciplinary study across the schools and allows enrollment in classes outside the student’s home school at no additional cost to the gradute student. Many courses, undergraduate as well as graduate, are available for graduate student enrollment subject to eligibility guidelines:
• Students must be registered full time in graduate degree programs and be current in their tuition payment and/or remission. They must also have the approval of their faculty advisor or administrative officer to take a course outside their discipline.
• Courses will be open to students outside the discipline only if the students have met the required prerequisites and if the program director and the course instructor agree to admit such students.
• Finally, courses in University College, including its Summer School, are not part of this agreement, and courses now requiring additional fees (such as individual music lessons) will continue to do so.
