Master of Arts: Gender Equity Studies Courses

C & I and Gender Equity Continuous Enrollment Policy

Students must complete the bulk of their thesis/project in their EDTE 505/506 course in order to be illegible for continuous enrollment. Thesis/project advisor determines the necessary work needed to be completed for a continuous enrollment. (Typically bulk of the work means a completed chapter of 1-5 with just minor edits needed.)

If a student is granted continuous enrollment, EDTE 599, students have only one semester in continuous enrollment to complete their thesis/project. If students do not complete their thesis/project in their continuous enrollment semester, students will be asked to retake EDTE 505/506.

Continuous enrollment would not be granted if students have not written the bulk of their thesis/project (e.g only chapters 1-3 completed) and are not close to finishing their thesis/project. If the majority of a student’s thesis/project is not completed , the student would be required to retake EDTE 505/506.
