Message sent on behalf of Ms. Andrea Kailer, Programs Coordinator, Faculty of Graduate Studies
To: All Graduate Students
Cc: Dept./Unit Heads, Grad Chairs & Admin Contacts
Please read the below information carefully as it concerns important information about graduate student registration. You may also wish to consult the attached Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs).
1. Information for all Master’s and Ph.D. students who are continuing in their programs*:
All graduate students are required to register every academic term which includes Fall, Winter and Summer.
Summer 2022 registration opens April 4th. Students who do not register for Summer term will be discontinued from their program of study. As Summer 2022 term is approaching, please ensure you are at least registered for the re-registration course:
This re-registration should be over and above any course registration(s) you complete. So long as you are in a re-registration course for each term, you will retain status in your graduate program even if you withdraw from other courses.
*MBA and MPA students: if you need to register for re-registration only, please contact your departmental/unit graduate program assistant.
Exceptions to Summer 2022 term re-registration:
* Students on a Parental or Exceptional Leave do not have to register in the term(s) for which this kind of leave is approved. Students on a Regular Leave are still required to register for the re-registration course in each term.
* Students who anticipate graduating in May 2022 are not required to register for the Summer 2022 term.
Students who anticipate graduating in October 2022 must register for their final Thesis/Practicum/Comprehensive Exam/Project or the final course specific to their program in Summer 2022 term. Re-registration in GRAD 7020/GRAD 8020 is still a good idea in case your graduating term is delayed.
All course numbers and CRNs can be found by searching the Class Schedule link at https://aurora.umanitoba.ca/.
If you have questions about registration please contact your departmental/unit graduate program assistant.
2. Compulsory GRAD 7300 Research Integrity Tutorial – complete only (1) time in your program (within your first year)
All Pre-Master’s, Masters and Ph.D. students are required to successfully complete GRAD 7300 Research Integrity Tutorial – once registered for the course in Aurora, the associated modules can be located in UM Learn. This zero (0) credit-hour, pass/fail research integrity tutorial is a highly interactive online tool designed to provide a comprehensive overview and basic understanding of the best practices and principles in the Responsible Conduct of Research. Students will be exposed to practical advice on how to deal with challenging situations that may arise while doing research within their own area of expertise. The course also addresses the latest standards, codes, and policies in the Responsible Conduct of Research both locally and globally. The content of this tutorial is run out of the Vice President (Research & International) Office and more information can be found on their webpage: https://umanitoba.ca/researchintegrity/
All Graduate Students who started their graduate program in Summer 2021 must have completed the tutorial by April 30, 2022. Failure to do so will result in an F NP and hold placed on future registration. Please review the regulations associated with GRAD 7300 in the FGS Academic Guide<https://catalog.umanitoba.ca/graduate-studies/academic-guide/academic-perfo…>. If you already successfully completed GRAD 7300, you may ignore this information.
3. Compulsory GRAD 7500 Academic Integrity Tutorial – complete only (1) time in your program (within your first term)
Academic Integrity is a matter of paramount importance in academia. It is the foundation of scholarly work. Breaches of Academic Integrity, whether intentional or unintentional, have potentially very serious consequences to a student’s status in the Faculty of Graduate Studies and at the University of Manitoba. To help graduate students better understand the issues surrounding Academic Integrity, the Senate of the University of Manitoba passed a motion that requires all graduate students to take a compulsory tutorial on Academic Integrity.
All Pre-Master’s and graduate and students must register for and complete GRAD 7500 Academic Integrity Tutorial one time. This is a zero (0) credit-hour course intended to introduce students to their basic responsibilities regarding academic integrity and to the resources available to them.
Pre-Master’s and graduate students who are starting their graduate program in Summer 2022 must register for GRAD 7500:
GRAD 7501 (French version for USB students only)
Failure to successfully complete this course by the end of the student’s first term of registration will result in further remedial measures.
* Please only register for GRAD 7500 once. Do not register in subsequent terms while admitted to the same degree program.
* Students on an exceptional/parental/regular leave of absence must register in GRAD 7500 upon return from leave if it has not already been completed.
* Students MUST complete GRAD 7500 even if:
o They have already completed the Research Integrity course.
o They have already completed a similar departmental seminar course.
o Their thesis is in the middle of distribution or they have completed the distribution.
o A span of time of more than one (1) term separates one graduate degree program from another graduate degree program (for instance, if a student completed GRAD 7500 at the Master’s level, took a break of more than one (1) term and was admitted to another Master’s or Ph.D. program).
* Students are not required to complete GRAD 7500 if:
o They are a Ph.D. student who already completed GRAD 7500 during their Master’s program (without a span of more than one (1) term between programs).
o They are a visiting or occasional student.
Students must register for the course in Aurora in order to access it in UM Learn. (Students on the USB campus must access GRAD 7501 via Moodle.)
We strongly suggest you review the course instructions<https://umanitoba.ca/faculties/graduate_studies/htmlmail/Academic_Integrity…> prior to starting the course.
GRAD 7500 and GRAD 7300 Frequently Asked Questions can be viewed here<https://umanitoba.ca/graduate-studies/student-experience/core-academic-requ…>.
Always remember to plan your program carefully. It is imperative that you ensure you are registering for only those courses that are a major part of your Master’s or Ph.D. program. If they are not part of your major program then they should be added through your department/unit office as an Auxiliary course “X”, Audit course “A” or an Occasional course “O”. If you have questions about this, contact your department/unit. Do not register for more courses than your program allows because you may be assessed extra fees at the time of graduation.
Per the Faculty of Graduate Studies Academic Guide<https://catalog.umanitoba.ca/graduate-studies/academic-guide/academic-perfo…>:
“Students are responsible for ensuring that they meet all degree and program requirements. The advisor (and if appropriate co-advisor), advisory committee, and department/unit must ensure that each student follows Faculty of Graduate Studies and department/unit guidelines and meets all program requirements. The Faculty of Graduate Studies performs a final check of Faculty of Graduate Studies minimum requirements for each student just prior to graduation. Students are cautioned, therefore, to periodically check all regulations with respect to their degree requirements. Failure to meet all the requirements will render a student ineligible to graduate.”
Thank you for your attention to these important graduate student matters.
