Registration In Absentia

In absentia status is a form of registration available to academic and professional graduate students undertaking coursework or research related to their degree programs outside of California. Students registered in absentia are only assessed full health insurance fees, and 15 percent of the combined University Educational and Registration Fees. If applicable, students are also assessed non-resident tuition and/or professional school fees.

In order to meet Graduate Division deadlines and requirements, students planning to register In Absentia must have the completed application to the Graduate Services Adviser by the last day of classes of the preceding semester–that is usually around December 1st and May 1st.
