Graduate students who do not complete their capstone thesis or project requirement by the end of the term in which they have registered will receive an IP grade on their transcript. Once a graduate student has (a) registered for the maximum number of credits included in their graduate program's standard curriculum, (b) has received an IP grade in the required thesis or project course(s), and (c) not completed the capstone requirement within two academic semesters, the student must register for 722 Thesis/Project Extended – non-credit bearing but billable for 1 credit at existing graduate tuition rates, until the thesis or project has been completed. If the student does not register for the 722 course, he or she will become an inactive student and will have to reapply for admission to the Graduate School and pay all other appropriate fees. Reapplication must be made in accordance with the established deadline dates and current admission requirements.
Once a student has completed the thesis or project, the IP graduate will be changed to the appropriate grade.
