If students make a course change after the fee refund deadlines including audited, modular, and zero-credit courses , they may be charged a fee even if the total number of credits for which they are enrolled does not change. Some cautions related to swapping courses:.

Students must check with the intended program concerning admission requirements for example, letters of recommendation or statement of purpose and eligibility. Upon receipt of a recommendation from the program, the Graduate School will notify the student of the decision. Questions regarding the status of an application are best directed to the program. Dissertators who add a program or a certificate program must enroll and pay fees as a regular graduate student.

If a student changes advisors, they need to notify their program coordinator. It is the responsibility of every graduate student to have an advisor. If students do not have an advisor, the Graduate School may suspend them from further graduate study at UW—Madison.

However, in some cases, particularly for incoming students, the program may assign an advisor. Students should contact their program for information. It is against university policy to attend classes without being enrolled. Students are responsible for materials presented in such meetings or activities. A student auditing a course is expected to attend classes on a regular basis as an observer. Audits are not free; a course taken for audit costs the same as a course taken for credit.

If students are not paying full-time fees, they will be assessed per-credit fees for an audit course. Auditors do not take examinations or submit class work. Audit courses do not satisfy any credit, coursework, or degree requirements, nor do they count in fulfilling minimum or maximum credits required in each term.

If students audit a course and do not attend or drop it, they will receive a grade of NR No Report. Dissertators who audit a course in addition to the 3-credit research requirement will be removed from dissertator fee status and assessed regular graduate student fees.

Students who have research assistantship, fellowship or traineeship appointments are required to be enrolled full-time; audited courses do not count toward full-time enrollment. Instructors may limit the number of auditors in a course and may restrict participation of auditors in courses inappropriate for that function. For example, courses that by their nature require participation seminars, research, laboratory, performance, or language courses are typically considered inappropriate for auditing.

To audit a course, a student must first obtain the consent of the instructor. The student must follow the procedures established in the program offering the course. Requests for late audits will not be considered. The enrollment system counts all credits in determining maximum credit loads. Online enrollment authorization is required for certain courses. Once authorized by the program offering the course, students must then make the course changes.

Situations requiring authorizations are: University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign. Given there are multiple paths to breadth, the Graduate School leaves the choice of whether students achieve breadth through a minor or other means up to the specific program. If students drop all courses before the first day of classes, they officially cancel their enrollment, owe no tuition or fees for that term, and have no semester entry on their transcript.

In this case, it is not necessary for the student to submit a withdrawal request through MyUW. The university offers capstone certificates for students not currently enrolled in a UW—Madison graduate degree program.

Applicants must have completed a baccalaureate degree or equivalent credential from an accredited college or university. Capstone programs do not lead to the conferral of a graduate degree. The certificate shows the date of the preliminary examination as well as the issue date, but does not substitute for an official transcript from the Office of the Registrar. To obtain the certificate, students, advisors, or graduate coordinators should contact the Graduate School Degree Coordinator.

For purposes of certification to government or private agencies, the Office of the Registrar determines enrollment status as full-time or part-time according to institutional policies, which may differ from full-time or part-time requirements imposed by individual schools or programs. All grades from the semester in which you are depositing your dissertation and all other outstanding grades must be reported to the Graduate School before you can receive a completion letter.

If this change is not reported to the Graduate School, students may not be able to enroll or receive financial aid, and international students will be considered out of status. International students should take the new admit letter from the program specifying the new degree level and financial documentation to ISS.

ISS will process a new I For questions, please contact the Graduate School Degree Coordinator. Degrees are granted in May, August, and December.

Commencement ceremonies are held only in May and December. For specific information about commencement, including deadline dates, ordering commencement attire, etc. The responsibilities of individual committee members are determined by the program. The final warrant request which includes committee membership must be submitted to the Graduate School at least three weeks before the examination date.

Students should contact their graduate program coordinator for specific program information. The Graduate School supports the principles of a compassionate tuition adjustment to accommodate students in the following circumstance:.

Relevant documentation may be required. Federal agencies and non-federal donors often place restrictions on the amount of work in which an awardee may engage, or on additional stipends an awardee may receive.

In addition, the university has a concurrent appointment policy that places limits on multiple appointments for fellows or trainees. Students can hold a concurrent appointment as a TA, RA, PA, or student hourly with their fellowship within the limits set out in the current university policy. The list of approved program rates can be found on the Graduate Assistantships webpage , under Assistantship Salaries by Program. Graduate Academic Services Bascom Hall gsacserv grad.

Once students achieve dissertator status they are expected to maintain continuous enrollment until completion of the doctoral degree.

In some cases, the 3 credits can be a combination of research and a seminar. Fall and spring enrollment are required whether or not they reside in Madison.

If dissertators do not maintain continuous enrollment, they will be assessed a degree completion fee equal to 12 times the current per-credit rate in effect at the time that they submit their dissertation to the Graduate School for final review. Copyright is the exclusive right given by federal law to the creator of a literary or artistic work to use, reproduce, or display the work.

Copyright Office, Independence Ave. Graduate students are responsible for appropriate use of copyrighted materials in their thesis. Some material may be available for use without restriction while other material may require written permission from the copyright holder.

Additionally, professional or disciplinary societies may have fair use statements to help negotiate disciplinary specialties. If written permission is required, students are responsible for obtaining such permission and maintaining records of the written permission to use the copyrighted material. Permission is usually requested by sending a letter of request to the copyright holder.

Normally, the letter would be returned with an approval stamp or signature. Some copyright holders require a specific form of acknowledgment. Note that obtaining written permission can be a lengthy process. Plan ahead and budget ample time to obtain all required permissions. Students holding graduate assistantships, fellowships, and traineeships must meet minimum enrollment requirements when making course changes.

International students holding graduate assistantships, fellowships, and traineeships must meet minimum enrollment requirements as well. The number assigned to a course gives an indication of the level of difficulty and indicates for whom the course is intended. Courses numbered under are undergraduate-level courses. Courses in the range may be taken for credit by both undergraduate and graduate students; courses in the range are generally considered intermediate level and courses in the range are generally considered advanced level.

Graduate students taking courses numbered are expected to do graduate-level work, though they are enrolled in an undergraduate level course. The range is not intended to include undergraduate-only, elementary level courses. Courses in the range are open only to graduate students. Students are not allowed to enroll for more or fewer credits than indicated for a course in the Schedule of Classes.

Students are responsible for learning about and complying with campus deadlines. Failure to meet deadlines for enrollment, payment of fees, changing courses or credits, and receiving a degree can cost time, money, or both.

Graduate students should note that Graduate School deadlines do not necessarily correspond to undergraduate enrollment deadlines.

To be eligible students must have submitted their final thesis or project paper to their advisor while they were enrolled. This fee is comparable to 2 graduate credits at the current resident tuition rate. This fee is established annually and assessed per semester.

The Graduate School requires all dissertators to maintain continuous enrollment. Dissertators must enroll in the semester s in which they defend, submit their dissertations, and graduate. In rare circumstances where this is not possible, a degree completion fee is assessed to recognize the inevitable use of university facilities including faculty and staff time up to and including the successful defense and submission of the dissertation.

The fee is equal to 12 times the current per-credit dissertator rate in effect at the time the dissertation is submitted. The fee is assessed at the time dissertators are ready to complete the degree and is based on the resident or nonresident tuition status dissertators had at their last term of enrollment.

If dissertators break enrollment and then reenter and enroll for less than 4 continuous terms before completion, they will pay a prorated rate the credit fee minus all continuous enrollment credits paid since the time of readmission. If enrollment is broken, but a dissertator reenters and enrolls for at least 4 continuous terms, then a completion fee is not assessed.

Graduate students who complete all degree requirements at any point during a term remain officially enrolled and retain student status through the official degree conferral date for that term, as determined by the Secretary of the Faculty and posted as conferral date on the transcript. Degrees are granted three times per year in May, August, and December.

Funding for graduating students: Graduate assistants, fellows, and trainees may remain on the payroll until the end of the term, as stated above, or may be removed if necessary for a change of status eg. Students must have been registered for the previous semester Fall, Spring, or Summer.

Students will not have to register or pay fees for the next semester. In order to remain on payroll, a student must be enrolled. If degree requirements are completed during the window period, the student is not enrolled and does not retain student status through the conferral date for that term.

Therefore, the student cannot remain on payroll through the conferral date for that term. Students receiving window period degrees may remain on payroll and retain student status only through the dates listed below:. A computerized graduate degree summary is not prepared for graduate students eg. The Board of Regents authorizes programs to offer a specific degree s. The Office of the Registrar will mail diplomas after the close of the term that degrees awarded are certified by the Graduate School.

The Registrar finalizes the degrees, and the diplomas are embossed by the manufacturer. International students must enter a diploma address via MyUW to receive the diploma.

If a student wants the Office of the Registrar to use a different address, they should enter a diploma address in MyUW. Students with disabilities are encouraged to inform their faculty advisor and instructor of their need for disability-related accommodations in a timely manner.

Implementation of reasonable accommodations is a shared faculty and student responsibility. The McBurney Disability Resource Center provides disability-related services and accommodations to undergraduate, graduate, professional, special and guest students. The Center works closely with students and faculty on the provision of reasonable accommodations to ensure access to the learning environment.

The Center makes referrals to other campus offices or community resources for non-classroom accommodations such as housing, transportation, personal care attendants, etc. Students should contact the Center upon admission to begin the eligibility for services process. Early notice is essential in order to have services and accommodations in place prior to the start of the semester. Publication of the doctoral dissertation is required.

The university uses ProQuest UMI ETD Administrator to publish the dissertation electronically and on microfilm and to publish an abstract of the dissertation in Dissertation Abstracts, a monthly publication. Dissertators must pay the cost of processing the dissertation and publishing the abstract by ProQuest. Dissertator is a unique fee status for students who have completed all requirements for a doctoral degree except for the dissertation.

To be eligible for dissertator fee status, a student must:. Dissertator status is effective at the start of the semester following completion of all dissertator requirements for the doctoral degree except for the dissertation. In order to initiate the change to dissertator status, the prelim warrant must be sent to the Graduate School in a timely fashion.

Students can check on dissertator status by contacting their graduate program coordinator. All dissertator requirements must be met before the first day of classes to be a dissertator for any given semester. If all dissertator requirements are completed before the first day of classes but the signed prelim warrant does not reach the Graduate School by that deadline, the student can still become a dissertator that semester. Submit the warrant to the Graduate School as soon as possible and enroll for at least 3 credits usually research for that semester.

Removal of Dissertator Status: A dissertator who enrolls for more or fewer than 3 credits will be removed from dissertator status for the fall or spring term in which the enrollment is not exactly 3 credits. During the summer, however, an enrolled dissertator may ask their advisor to request an overload of additional credits in a short session and still retain dissertator fee status, if the course is related to dissertation research or professional training that is not offered in regular semesters.

The removal of dissertator status may have the following consequences:. If a dissertator wants to pursue a graduate degree or certificate in another area, the dissertator fee status will be discontinued and regular graduate fees will be assessed, with possible consequences listed above. For purposes of research and academic responsibilities, all departments and programs offering graduate degrees are grouped into four academic divisions: The division is independent of the schools or colleges.

A division draws faculty, departments, and programs from more than one school or college. The executive committee for each of the four academic divisions Arts and Humanities, Biological Sciences, Physical Sciences, Social Studies advises about tenure appointments and other matters of personnel, educational policy, and selection of personnel to serve on various committees.

Students completing a double degree earns two degrees two programs , and receives two diplomas. Students may apply for an additional program at the time of original application, add a program at any time during their enrollment, or reapply and pursue a second degree after completion of the first. Students should inquire with each program prior to enrollment to see if additional policies exist that would restrict the ability to complete a double degree.

In all scenarios, regardless of whether double degree programs are completed consecutively or concurrently, students must:. Approval of the double degree: Both advisors must sign the course lists as indication of approval. The Graduate School will review the course lists for credit overlap between degrees. A dual degree is two degrees, one of which is granted in a graduate program, and the other in a professional school e. Students should inquire with each program prior to enrollment to see if additional policies exist that would restrict the ability to complete a dual degree.

Tuition is determined by a combined fee schedule table. Assessed fees are roughly halfway between graduate fees and professional fees. Students enrolled prior to fall in a MFA, specialist certificate, or doctoral degree program have the option to complete their degree under the prior policy requirements if they maintain continuous enrollment.

Appeals will be considered in exceptional cases. The request for appeal must be made on a student-by-student basis. The appeal should include sufficient justification for the request and any supporting documentation. The Program in English as a Second Language ESL , Department of English, offers an array of support courses, training and testing for international TA applicants, and courses designed for international graduate students in speaking and presentations, writing, and pronunciation.

In most cases international students who are required to take an ESL course must do so during their first semester of graduate enrollment. However, ESL course credits below level do not count toward Graduate School enrollment requirements, including credit requirements for assistantships, fellowships, and traineeships.

Once enrolled, students should confirm their enrollment and print their course grid. Students should enroll early to avoid a late initial enrollment fee and class cancellation due to low enrollment. Students are responsible for the accuracy of their class schedule and for all tuition, fees, and academic consequences that result from that schedule. Continuing students in good standing may enroll for the next term without special permission from the Graduate School.

Before enrolling, students should consult their advisor to approve their class schedule for that term and to determine if they need authorization for any proposed courses. All students must use the online enrollment system. All students will receive an email message from the Office of the Registrar about their assigned enrollment appointment time. Students can expect to receive this notification about one week prior to the beginning of the priority enrollment period.

There are extra fees for late initial enrollment and late fee payment. Students should enroll early. Failure to receive a student account invoice does not relieve students of the obligation to meet established fee payment deadlines as displayed in the MyUW Student Center, Class Search. If students elect not to enroll as full-time students as defined by the Graduate School, they are responsible for knowing about possible obligations that may require full-time status.

Such obligations may include visa eligibility, fellowships, assistantships, financial aid, external funding agencies, and program satisfactory progress requirements. Graduate students who do not need to maintain full-time status including TAs and PAs have a 2 credit enrollment minimum during fall and spring semesters. Dissertators are required to enroll for 3 graded credits taken at or above and directly related to their dissertation research. Once dissertator status has been achieved, courses other than must be directly related to the dissertation research and approved by the advisor.

Dissertators must enroll during the semester or general 8-week summer session DHH in which they expect to earn a degree. Students must be enrolled during the semester when they defend the dissertation and when they deposit the dissertation.

If defending and depositing in two different semesters, the student is required to be enrolled in both semesters. Students do not have to be dissertators during the semester or summer in which they expect to earn a doctoral degree, but they must be eligible for dissertator status before they complete the doctoral degree, and they must enroll in the semester in which they will graduate.

If a student enrolls before the dissertator status is approved, the enrollment system may indicate they are not eligible for that course. The enrollment system does not care if students are dissertators. If students had problems getting into a course, it is probably because permission has not been entered into the enrollment system. If dissertator status is not processed by the segregated fee deadline, students should register for 3 credits and pay regular non-dissertator graduate fees.

The fee difference will be adjusted for that semester when dissertator status is indicated in the system. It is against university policy to hold an assistantship without being appropriately enrolled.

Non-dissertator graduate students holding fellowships that are payrolled through the university must be enrolled full-time: Those who are not payrolled as fellows over the summer are not required to be enrolled. Those who are payrolled as fellows during any part of the summer term must enroll in the general 8-week summer session DHH. Both F-1 and J-1 student visa regulations require students to be enrolled full-time each fall and spring semester 8 credits, not taken as audit.

Summer enrollment is not required by the U. However, summer enrollment may be required due to other circumstances; see summer enrollment requirements for assistantships, fellowships, traineeships, and graduating students.

International students-online learning credit limit: F-1 and J-1 student visa holders have restrictions regarding the number of online credits that can be taken during the semester as it relates to fulfilling the full-time enrollment requirement. There are also restrictions regarding online enrollment during the final term of study-especially when the final term for completion is in summer.

Students must be enrolled at UW—Madison if they are using university facilities, including faculty and staff time. Financial aid, loan deferral: In extreme and rare circumstances, the Dean s of the Graduate School have authority to grant exceptions to existing Graduate School policy.

The survey collects information on academic experiences, advising, and future plans. The SED is a federally-sponsored national survey of individuals receiving research degrees from all U.

The SED is to be completed by Ph. The Graduate School surveys all students graduating with a doctoral degree. The DES collects additional information on academic experiences, e. Students will receive an email with a link to the survey at the time of the final warrant request.

Each individual survey will provide a certificate of completion once you have submitted the survey. A student paying full-time tuition and fees at the UW—Madison campus may ask to take courses at UW—Extension for no additional cost if the total credit load does not exceed the maximum allowable credit load. If the Graduate School approves, the student may take the course without paying additional fees.

A UW—Madison faculty member may pursue a graduate degree provided arrangements have been made to avoid conflicts of interest and to satisfy time commitments.

Although the Graduate School does not have a formal leave of absence policy for pre-dissertators, there are a number of family-friendly practices and resources for students considering taking a leave of absence for birth or adoption.

Many departments and programs also have local policies. Fellowships are monetary awards that students use to pursue graduate studies. In general, fellowships require no work obligations on the part of the recipient. Merit-based campus and departmental fellowships are sometimes awarded to UW—Madison graduate students by their graduate programs. To inquire about eligibility and application procedures, students must contact their graduate program.

Many federal agencies, professional organizations, and private foundations provide fellowships for students pursuing graduate studies. Students are encouraged to look for and apply for external fellowships, and to understand the unique terms and conditions of each fellowship for which they apply. Students may not take the final oral examination until they have satisfied all other requirements for their degree.

Doctoral students have five years from the date of passing their preliminary examinations to take their final oral examination and submit their dissertation. The graduate program coordinator must submit the final doctoral warrant request to the Graduate School at least three weeks before the final oral examination. After the graduate program coordinator submits the doctoral degree warrant request, the Graduate School will review this request and send the approved doctoral degree warrant to the graduate program coordinator.

To pass the examination, students must receive no more than one dissenting vote from their final oral examination committee. A Family Care Safety Registry was established by law to promote family and community safety. The registry helps to protect children, seniors, and the disabled by providing background information on that individual. In the United Kingdom, the Care Certificate was introduced in April , following the Cavendish Review of April into standards of care among health care assistants and support workers in the NHS and social care settings.

Typically, the turnover rate among unlicensed assistive personnel within an organization is very high, which can be detrimental to quality of care of patients and also create negative stress and dissatisfaction among the personnel.

The same terms are used outside the U. However, the majority of university lecturers and instructors in the United States, as of [update] , do not occupy these tenure-track ranks, but are part-time adjuncts.

Research and education are among the main tasks of tenured and tenure-track professors, with the amount of time spent on research or teaching depending strongly on the type of institution. Publication of articles in conferences, journals, and books is essential to occupational advancement.

The term "professors" in the United States refers to a group of educators at the college and university level. In the United States, while "Professor" as a proper noun with a capital "P" generally implies a position title officially bestowed by a university or college to faculty members with a PhD or the highest level terminal degree in a non-academic field e.

At some junior colleges without a formal ranking system, instructors are accorded the courtesy title of "professor". These full-time faculty members with PhDs or other highest level terminal degrees designated as acceptable by a university or college , engage in both undergraduate and graduate teaching, mentoring, research, and service.

Only faculty in these positions are eligible for tenure. The top administrative post in many academic departments is the "department chair. While many department chairs also hold endowed chair positions, the two positions are distinct.

The titles are historical traditions; for example, it is not implied that an assistant professor "assists" more senior faculty. There is often a strict timeline for application for promotion from assistant to associate professor, most often 5 or 6 years following the initial appointment. Applicants are evaluated based on their contributions to research, teaching, and administration. The relative weightings of these contributions differ by institution, with PhD-granting universities usually placing more emphasis on research and liberal arts colleges placing more emphasis on teaching.

The decision to grant tenure and promotion from assistant to associate professor usually requires numerous levels of approval, with a common sequence being:.

A decision to reject a candidate for tenure normally requires that the individual leave the institution within two years under the AAUP tenure guidelines. Otherwise, tenure is granted along with promotion from assistant to associate professor. Although tenure and promotion are usually separate decisions, they are often highly correlated such that a decision to grant a promotion coincides with a decision in favor of tenure, and vice versa.

Promotion to associate professor usually results in an increased administrative load and membership on committees that are restricted to tenured faculty. Some people remain at the level of associate professor throughout their careers. This includes external reviews, decisions by the department, recommendations by members of other departments, and high-ranking university officials. Usually, this final promotion requires that the individual has maintained an active research program, and excellent teaching, in addition to taking a leadership role in important departmental and extra-departmental administrative tasks.

Full professor is the highest rank that a professor can achieve other than in a named position and is seldom achieved before a person reaches their mids. The rank of full professor carries additional administrative responsibilities associated with membership on committees that are restricted to full professors.

Two-year community colleges that award tenure often use the "professor" ranking system as well. Individuals in these positions who typically though not always focus on teaching undergraduate courses do not engage in research except in the case of "research professors" , may or may not have administrative or service roles, and sometimes are eligible for job security that is less strong than tenure.

They may still be referred to casually as "professor" and be described by the common-noun "professor", whether or not they officially designated that position title by the university or college. Likewise, the term "instructor" is very generic and can be applied to any teacher, or it can be a specific title tenure or tenure-track depending upon how an institution chooses to use the term.

Retired faculty may retain formal or informal links with their university, such as library privileges or office space. At some institutions, faculty who have retired after achieving the rank of professor are given the title "professor emeritus " male or "professor emerita" female. Contrary to some beliefs, assistant professors, associate professors, and full professors are all, in fact, technically professors. Usually students who have completed their doctoral studies seek positions as assistant professors in colleges and universities.

As they progress in their established fields through research, teaching, and service, they can make bids for promotion and tenure, which typically elevates them to the rank of associate professor. Associate professors who continue to establish high profiles and become experts in their fields of study may bid for a promotion to full professor, which is considered an esteemed position reserved for the most successful professors working in their fields.

Note that in other English-speaking countries, the term lecturer might have a different meaning. For example, in the United Kingdom and in Ireland, the position of lecturer is equivalent to that of assistant professor in the US system.

The rank of assistant professor generally is held for a probationary period of five to seven years, [7] after which the individual will either be promoted to associate professor and granted tenure i. As of , Competition for assistant professor positions in many fields is rapidly growing; the number of PhD graduates is rising, while the number of assistant professor openings remains roughly constant.

Occupation Outlook Handbook notes that a significant proportion of any growth in academic professor jobs will be due to "part-time and non tenure-track positions". After several years at the rank of assistant professor, individuals are considered for a promotion and tenure. Tenure generally constitutes a lifetime employment agreement, and could also serve as a means of protecting faculty whose research may be socially, politically, or scientifically controversial.

Upon successfully receiving tenure , an assistant professor usually is promoted to the rank of associate professor. Alternatively, a person may be hired at the associate professor level without tenure which is a typical practice at some universities, often done as a financial inducement to attract someone from outside the institution, but who might not yet meet all the qualifications for tenure.

If an applicant is appointed to the rank of associate professor without tenure, the position is usually tenure-track with an expectation that the person will soon qualify for tenure.

At some institutions, individuals are promoted to the rank of associate professor prior to receiving tenure. In these situations, the individual may eventually apply for tenure at that institution or, optionally, seek a tenured position elsewhere. In most traditional colleges and universities, this position is always tenured ; however, this may not be the case in a for-profit private institution or certain church-affiliated universities and colleges.

The rank of professor is the highest of the standard academic ranks in the United States, and is held by The absence of a mandatory retirement age contributes to "graying" of this occupation.

The median age of American full professors in was around 55 years. Very few people attain this position before the age of In addition to increasing salary, each promotional step also tends to come with increased administrative responsibilities.

In some cases, these changes are offset by reduced teaching or research expectations. A full professor who retires in good standing may be referred to as a professor emeritus for men, or professor emerita for women.
