All graduate students must register and enroll every academic year semester (fall and spring) from entering a graduate program until the time they receive their degree. 

January 4: Student bills are due on Thursday, January 4th by 5 pm. You must register, pay your bill, and confirm your enrollment on or before the deadline or you will be charged a $50 late fee. Supported students must pay their student fees (even if support has not yet been added to your account) to avoid late fees.

January 17:  Students may drop courses on Banweb without penalty through Wednesday, January 17th.  After this date, there are no longer refunds for dropping classes. You will be responsible for any additional charges (even if you drop and add a class resulting in the same number of credits). If you are a supported student, you will be responsible for any additional charges, unless these charges are approved and paid for by your department.  

If you are considering withdrawing from Graduate School, please contact gradschool@mtu.edu.

Changing to Off-Campus: Students who are earning an online degree, taking all ONLINE courses for a semester, or are completing their degree out of the area should contact their department/program to ensure that they are coded correctly for the semester. The department should contact the Registrar’s Office (registrar@mtu.edu) to authorize a change in campus code. All campus code changes must be done by Wednesday of Week 2 for the change to be made and the bill updated. If you have any questions or concerns, email registrar@mtu.edu.

If you are on partial support, you must still be registered as a full-time student. The 9 credits required for full-time status may include research credits, graduate, audited, PE, and undergraduate courses. You are responsible for paying the student-voted fees totaling $130 (experience tech fee – $80, graduate activity fee – $50) as well as international surcharges (if applicable) by the deadline (even if support has not posted to your account) to avoid late fees. Student-voted fees are not assessed if you are off campus, for example, online students (please contact your department if you are coded incorrectly). You can review your pay stubs in banweb. Click on the employee tab, click “pay information”, and click “pay stubs.”

Unsupported Students: You must be enrolled in at least 1 credit to fulfill the continuous enrollment requirement. Student-voted fees are not assessed if you are off campus (please contact your department if you are coded incorrectly).
