It is a policy of the Institute that anyone who has completed 9 credits of thesis research (or 27 credits of dissertation research) must register every semester for a Continuation of Thesis course to remain an active student. Departments may offer graduate students a one semester extension of time before the Continuation of Thesis tuition is levied. Payment of all Continuation of Thesis is waived for all Summer semesters.
