Continuous enrollment

Continuous enrollment status as a doctoral candidate begins at the onset of term that immediately follows successful completion of the comprehensive examination. Students must maintain continuous-enrollment status during their doctoral candidacy.  

Continuous enrollment status provides students with access to the following resources for dissertation completion:

  • adviser support
  • doctoral program committee guidance
  • university research facilities  

To maintain continuous enrollment, students must register for the required coursework each semester using myZou. Students who have enrollment difficulties should contact the Graduate School's doctoral academic adviser for registration assistance.
