Any student, domestic or international, who has successfully defended a thesis or dissertation, and who wants to retain access to the USU Library, Box, VPN, or BlueZone during the Grace Semester, should send a email to firstname.lastname@example.org
, asking to be registered for USU 7777. There is no registration or course fee associated with this course. Except for international students (see below), students are only eligible to be registered for USU 7777 for one semester.
Any student who wishes to use University facilities other than the library during the Grace Semester can pay the fees associated with the 5-credit tuition amount at the Registrar’s Office. Students who pay those fees do not need to register for USU 7777.
For international students, registering for USU 7777 will maintain “in-status” classification with ICE. Because the course is not associated with any credits, students who enroll are ineligible for graduate assistantships or subsidized health insurance.
If a student has not completed all degree requirements by the end of the Grace Semester, the student must pay a $100 Late Completion Fee for each semester following the Grace Semester. Because of SEVIS regulations, a student holding an F-1 or J-1 visa is not eligible to pay the $100 Late Completion Fee, but must be registered for USU 7777 through the semester of completion.
Library Only/IT Services: If you need Library Only (library reserves) and IT Services (i.e. VPN, Box, BlueZone), please email email@example.com. The Graduate School will need to verify that you have successfully defended.
Student Body Services: If you would like all Student Body Services (computer labs, campus recreation facilities, library, VPN, Box, BlueZone) you must pay the Student Fee amount of 5 credits, please email firstname.lastname@example.org. The Graduate School will need to verify that you have successfully defended and notify the Registrar’s Office that you are eligible to pay the Student Fees of 5 credits.
