ENGL 599 – Doctoral Thesis Research Registration
How to register for ENGL 599
- Pass your prelim exams. Obtain written approval (email is fine) from your dissertation committee chair to enroll in ENGL 599 with that person.
- b. If you are enrolling in ENGL 599 and 591 concurrently, obtain written approval to enroll in 599 at the same time that you do for 591.
- Fill out the form below.
- Email your chair's approval and your UIN to Katherine Simon to have the registration block lifted.
- Register for the appropriate number of credit hours via my.uic.edu.
Note: ENGL 599 is a variable credit hour course. Thirty-two (32) hours are required to graduate with the PhD degree, but no more than 32 hours will be applied toward your 96-hour degree requirement. You must remain enrolled until you defend unless you take a Leave of Absence. Therefore, students who continue to work on the dissertation past the 32-hour ENGL 599 mark often choose to enroll in "zero hour" registration status. Note: you must finish all other course requirements to enroll in zero hours. Once you enroll in zero hours, you are no longer eligible for some kinds of tuition waivers.
