Registration and Section Numbers

Posted by Joyce on April 6, 2009

ENGL 5000 Professional Development
This course is used for MATC portfolio preparation and for any student taking coursework who needs extra hours in order to maintain 3 hours in order to keep their financial aid, student loans, teaching assistantship, or research assistantship. Sign up for local instructor’s section number for variable credit. Sec. 11=Borshuk, for example.

ENGL 5300 Independent Study
Online students register for section D21 (Texas residents) or D31 (non-Texas residents), regardless of the instructor. Local students sign up for the instructor’s section (Grass, Carter, Dragga, for example).

ENGL 5378 Internship
All online students register for section D21 or D31, regardless of the internship instructor of record. Local students sign up for the instructor’s section.

ENGL 7000 Research
English 7000 is used for preparation for qualifying exams, and online students may register for section 027 (Carter) or 009 (Dragga) for 3 hours (reducible to 1 hour by student petition for extraordinary circumstances).

ENGL 8000 Dissertation Hours
All online students register for section D21 or D31, regardless of their dissertation director. Local students sign up for the instructor’s section.

All dissertation students (online and on-campus) register for ENGL 8000 at a level of 3 units fall, 3 units spring, and 1-3 units in the summer term of their choice. More hours may be taken, as 8000 is a variable-credit course — a student might be ready to graduate and still lacks 5 units, for example. In the semester of graduation, they will register for at least 3 hours. This policy is in accordance with the graduate school’s requirements. (In all but the graduation semester, long semester hour requirements may be reducible to 1 hour by student petition for extraordinary circumstances.)
