Graduate Student Registration and Confirmation of Enrollment
Please encourage all graduate students to register for fall courses as quickly as possible.  If the department is responsible for registering students, we ask that you complete registration this week or next week, at the latest. This includes registration for students who require continuous registration, pre-dissertation, or dissertation credits. Early registration ensures accurate and timely enrollment reporting. Please remind students to confirm their enrollments via BU Brain by September 5
