  • Every semester: ALL BME students must register at both Georgia Tech and Emory University.
  • For students working in Georgia Tech laboratories:
    • At Georgia Tech:
      • These students must register for 21 credit hours in the Fall and Spring, and 16 credit hours in the summer (Use BMED 9000 to fill in the credits up to 21 or 16 hours).
      • Students must register for these hours through OSCAR.
    • At Emory University:
      • These students must register for at least one credit hour per semester.  If not taking any classes, a student can register for BMED 9999 to ensure that they remain an active Emory student. 
      • Students must register for these hours through OPUS
      • These students do NOT need to pay fees at Emory.
  • For students working in Emory University laboratories:
    • At Georgia Tech:
      • These students must register for 21 credit hours in the Fall and Spring, and 16 credit hours in the summer (Use BMED 9000 to fill in the credits up to 21 or 16 hours).
      • Students must register for these hours through OSCAR.
    • At Emory University:
      • These students must register for nine hours each semester.  To fill in these hours, a student can register for BMED 559R before his/her thesis proposal.  After the proposal, the student must register for BMED 799R. 
      • Students must register for these hours through OPUS.
      • These students DO need to pay fees at Emory.
  • Place Holder Courses
    • BMED 559R/799R (Emory)
      • Atlanta students based in Emory laboratories must use 559R (before proposal) or BMED 779R (after proposal) each term as the variable hour course to reach the required 9 credit hours.
    • BMED 9999R (Emory)
      • Students from Georgia Tech and PKU laboratories must register for this course every semester that they are NOT taking actual Emory courses (to keep their status active at Emory).
    • BMED 9999A (Georgia Tech)
      • Beijing-based PKU students must register for this course every semester they are NOT taking actual Georgia Tech courses (to keep their status active at Georgia Tech)
    • BMEM 6001 (For MD/PhD students, Georgia Tech)
      • New MD/PhD students should register for this course, as the variable hours course, to ensure they reach the minimum total hours required until they are officially matched with a thesis advisor.  After advisor matching, they should register with the advisor’s thesis hours section (BMED 9XXX).  They should also register for the BMED 9000 course at Emory with variable hours to meet the minimum requirement set by the MD/PhD program..
