You must enroll in this course every fall and spring semester until you pass your Qualifying Examination.
- After passing the Qualifying Examination you stop enrolling in NUTR 0399 and instead enroll in the required course, NUTR 0403: PhD Thesis Only, during every fall and spring registration period until you graduate to indicate your full-time enrollment status in your academic record in SIS.

If you attempted to enroll in a course at one of your dual-degree schools and could not via SIS, this means you need to use the cross-registration feature in SIS; this will bypass the instructor approval and be directed to the relevant Registrar for approval and for enrollment processing.
IMPORTANT: Some new additional details from Dr. Aviva Must at Tufts Public Health re: 1 credit course for MS/MPH students:
- The new course, ESP 1, will be on Fridays 10:00 AM-1:00 PM, and we are encouraging incoming students to take it this fall semester if it fits their schedule. It is not yet in SIS -- but students can add it to their course schedule any time before classes commence.
- MS/MPH sudents need to enroll in their first fall semester the MPH course titled, Engaged Scholarship: Skills and Planning - ESP I is the first of a three-course sequence designed for students completing the MPH degree. This course enables students to plan their MPH training experience and future public health career, while acquiring knowledge, skills, and perspectives essential for engaged scholarship. This course includes didactic sessions on foundational public health skills, such as literature reviews, citation management, and ethics. Students will work in small groups with the instructor to discuss public health interests, plan their MPH experience, and identify potential organizations for the Applied Practice Experience (APE). Additionally, students will explore topics, mentors, projects, and methods for the culminating Integrative Learning Experience (ILE).

Cross-Registration in a Fall 2023 Course:
- The Friedman School’s cross-registration partnerships that are available in the fall and spring semesters include: Tufts University Schools, Boston Consortium Schools (Boston University, Boston College, and Brandeis), and Harvard School of Public Health. Click here to review in detail each cross-registration partner's policies and processes.
- Tufts students may not cross-register in BU’s Online or Hybrid courses per the BU’s Provost Office (no exceptions) and also HSPH notes on their cross-registration webpage that Online courses are not eligible for cross-registration. Also, if you would like to cross register for a course at BU's School of Public Health (SPH), you must contact an SPH representative for registration approval. Contact the School of Public Health Registrar’s Office at firstname.lastname@example.org or 617-358-3434.
- Our cross-registration partners do not follow the same academic calendar as the Friedman School so please be sure to review the Host school's academic calendar for their add/drop deadlines, and other academic dates and deadlines, final exams, and holidays.
Please be patient with the cross-registration process—cross-registration partner host schools will not review/approve cross-registration requests until close to the start of the semester.
You may NOT use the mechanism of enrollment in a directed study course with a supervising Friedman School faculty member in order to enroll in a course that is offered at a school that's not an approved cross-registration partner (no reciprocity) with the Friedman School.
Our cross-registration partnerships pause in the summer semester with other Tufts Schools, HSPH, Brandeis, Boston University, and Boston College so you may not cross-register in the summer semester with these schools or you will be billed the Host school's tuition charge. In the summer semester you may cross-register at Tufts Public Health (all other cross-registration with our other cross-registration partners must take place only in the fall and spring semesters).
