9.4

Applications from graduates who wish to register as visiting students for a graduate course or a course designed to qualify them for registration leading to a higher degree of the University or for provisional graduate registration must be submitted to the Board for Graduate Schools to decide, at that time, on the recommendation of the Board of Studies, the examination requirements for each candidate to qualify him/her for graduate or provisional graduate registration in the University.
