During the PhD years, students are subject to the policy of their PhD program. BGS policy does not permit a student to take any course work outside of that which is related to his/her academic goals. If a student wants to take an extra course that is related to their academic goals, they must get permission from their Graduate Group Chair, and, if relevant, their thesis advisor. The course must be taken for a grade. Non-BGS students in the PhD phase must comply with their School’s policy. Permission to register must also be obtained from Skip Brass
