GCAC-601 Residency Requirement - Research Doctorate


Does summer registration count towards meeting the residency requirement?

Summer registration does NOT count toward meeting the residency requirement.

The following enrollment patterns meet the residency requirement:

  • Consecutive enrollment in a Fall semester followed by the immediate next Spring semester.
  • Consecutive enrollment in a Spring semester followed by the immediate next Fall semester (whether the student is enrolled in the intervening Summer or not).
