Office Of The Registrar, New Brunswick

World Language Institute in Summer Session and the Masters of Arts for Teachers.

Policy

Students pursuing the MAT in a language via the Summer Session World Languages Institute will be admitted to the Graduate School as nonmatriculated students. WLI will usually have first contact with these students and will refer them to the admissions office. Upon completion of 6 credits they will apply for admission to the MAT program. (Students not interested in or acceptable to the MAT program will register as Summer Session students--school 90.)

Procedures

Once students are admitted in their first summer session to the Graduate School as nonmatrics, the department may submit lists or individual names to the Registrar to allow online registration.

If a student wishes to take a fall or spring semester course, the Registrar must be notified so that a term segment may be created.

After the student has been admitted to the MAT program the department through the deanís office will notify the registrar to give degree credit for the credits taken in nonmatric status.

The deanís office will notify the Registrar to retroactively create a Graduate School nonmatric record for any student admitted to the MAT program after having been registered as a summer session-only (school 90) student, rather than starting as a nonmatric in the Graduate School. (This is the only way for the courses to appear on a graduate-only transcript and for the credits and grades to be included in the gpa and degree credits.) The Registrar will change the studentís codes from 90:NM:000 to 16:NM:940 (e.g.) for the summer sessions prior to admission to the MAT and will include the grades and credits into the gpa and degree credits.

EXCEPTION: If the Graduate School awards the MAT without having followed the procedures described in the preceding paragraph, the Registrar will, if the situation becomes known, change the school and class codes as described above.

These procedures were adopted by Dean Harvey Waterman on November 16, 2004 in consultation with Prof. Thomas Stevens.
