Good Afternoon,


I hope this email finds you well after the Winter Holiday!  Please follow the directions below if you need a CS 998 or CS 999 CRN for the upcoming Spring 2020 Semester. 


Please reply to this email with three things: 


  1. Your G Number
  2. Course you would like to register for
  3. The name of your advisor 


Replies without all three requested items will not receive a CRN.


Once you receive a CRN, please follow the directions below in order to adjust your variable credit for CS 998 or CS 999:


  1. Within the new Patriot Web registration system, please select “Register for Classes”
  2. Then select “Schedule and Options”
  3. Since this course is a variable credit, you can click on the credit under the “hours” column and it will prompt you to enter the amount of credits. You must type in the credit amount within the range given. Click “submit” and the credits will be changed.


Please note that you may not register for CS 999 until you have passed your dissertation proposal and fully advanced to candidacy. If you have already registered using a department provided CRN for CS 998 or CS 999, please be sure to check that you have the desired number of credits for your course.


If you have already received a CRN for CS 998 or CS 999, you may disregard this email.


Let us know if you have any questions or concerns. Thanks so much and take care!
