Exception Request for Candidacy 99100 Requirement
Candidacy enrollment in a student's final semester signals to the Graduate School that a degree audit will be processed in that semester. Candidacy 99100 is the usual enrollment which is a zero-credit, no requirement course. Students must also have at least one credit of regular tuition-bearing enrollment to be considered an active student in that semester. Students defending or depositing a thesis in their last semester must be enrolled in 1 credit of 69800 or 69900 research along with Candidacy for the degree they are receiving.
Students can now request exception to enroll directly into CAND 99200 in their semester of graduation by completing the appropriate exception form with their department academic advisor. This privileged candidacy enrollment will require completion of all graduation requirements by the published Early Deposit Deadline (first half of the semester) for Purdue University students in the term of graduation.
