2nd Year MA and CTMA Students

Either: HIST 700 (12 credits) - you pay for 1 credit + health insurance (unless you have a waiver). HOWEVER, unless you were an in-state student when you applied for admission, your tuition will be charged at the out-of-state rate. You are considered a full-time student so any loans will continue to be deferred, but you are also responsible for demonstrating you have health insurance – either by buying into the College system or by producing evidence that you have insurance elsewhere. 
Or: GRAD 999 (Continuous Enrollment) - You pay $100 per semester which keeps you in good standing with the college and gives you library access.  Since you wouldn't be paying fees, you'd have no access to other campus facilities, like the rec center or health center. You would not be able to buy the campus health insurance. We register you for GRAD 999 for 0 credits.  You are not considered a full-time student so any loans you have will no longer be deferred.
