The School of Graduate Studies offers graduate degrees, including: Masters of Public Health (MPH), Masters of Business Administration (MBA); Masters of Education (MEd, Masters of Arts (MA), Masters of Philosophy (Phil); and the research programs: Masters of Sciences (MSc) and Doctor of Philosophy (PhD) stand-alone degrees. Dual MPH and MSc degrees are offered with the Doctor of Medicine and Doctor of Veterinary Medicine professional programs.

Acceptance into any of these degree programs will be according to established policies and procedures for each program, which are to be found by contacting the Office of Graduate Studies or on the University website at www.sgu.edu.

All students in dual degree programs will have the appropriate MD or DVM credits applied to their graduate degree program as a pass/fail grade.

PROGRAM REGISTRATION

All students are required to register on or before the first day of classes each term as scheduled by the Office of the Registrar.

  • Students in dual degree programs should register for both programs simultaneously, if applicable.
  • Non-matriculated graduate students taking a course in the MBA program may register for a course up to one week prior to the start of the course.
REGISTRATION CHECK-IN

In order to complete registration check-in, students must have financial, academic and health insurance clearance.

New students who are not pre-registered in specific courses must first meet with their academic advisor to determine their course schedule.

Students should contact the Office of Student Finances before proceeding to Grenada. It is the responsibility of students to ensure good financial and academic standing. Students should not proceed to Grenada without financial and academic clearance.

PROVISIONAL REGISTRATION

Students may not register for classes unless their tuition and fees are paid in full. Provisional registration can be obtained with the written consent of the Office of Student Finances.

If students have paid in full for all previous academic terms, but have not yet paid for the upcoming/current term, students will be reviewed by the Office of Student Finances and may be approved for a payment plan. If approved, students are permitted to register for classes.

Students choosing the provisional registration option must be aware that there will be a

financial charge of one-and-one-half percent per month on any unpaid balances.

In addition to registration procedures previously described, provisional registration is permitted if the following requirements are met:

  1. Students’ prior term balances are paid in
  2. Students have received written approval from the Office of Student Finances outlining a payment

FACULTY ADVISOR-ADVISEE PROGRAM

All matriculated graduate students are assigned an academic advisor as described within each of the different graduate degree programs to guide and facilitate their academic program. The advisor plays an important role at the time of academic promotion and in the appeals process described later. The views of advisors and their interview summaries are filed with the Dean of Students for future reference (for example, Dean’s Letters).
