LCSEE graduate students may use this form to request a release of an Advising Hold
and/or to obtain department approval to register for Research Hours. To release
the Advising Hold, student must first meet with their advisor to review their course
schedule. Students must have their Plan of Study in place prior to the third semester
of registration. To register for Research Hours, students must have the consent
of their research advisor and will register for a course that is appropriate to
their degree (CS 697, CS 797, EE 697, EE 797, SENG 697, or CPE 797).
Current or recently admitted LCSEE graduate students may use this form to apply for
a graduate teaching assistantship (GTA) and/or meritorious tuition waivers.
The same form is used for both requests — the applicant will have the ability to
select if they are applying for GTA, waivers, or both. Note that a GTA position
automatically comes with a full tuition waiver. Applicants that apply for both
will be considered for waivers if they are not selected for a GTA position. When
you apply, please have the following information available: Your GPA, your GRE
scores/percentiles, and if you are applying for GTA, your CV and your preferred
teaching assignments. The due date for GTA positions is May 31 for the Fall semester
and Oct. 31 for the Spring semester. Waivers may be requested at any time, but
the department is allocated a limited number of waivers and might not have any
remaining for late applicants.
