Note to Graduate Students: Your graduate status is determined by the Graduate School and determines how you are billed. Master’s students are normally “A” status; but can be “B” status if you are enrolled for “Master’s Candidate for Degree” only. The change to “B” status is made automatically. Doctoral students who are taking course work and have not passed their comprehensive examination are normally “C” status. Doctoral students who are taking dissertation hours only and have not passed their comprehensive exam are generally “E” status. Once you have passed your comprehensive exam, you will be changed to “D” status by the Graduate School. The Graduate School must have both the Application for Admission to Candidacy and your signed comprehensive Exam Report Form in order to admit you to candidacy and make the change to “D” status.
