The date that you receive Chief Academic Officer (CAO) approval on your Doctoral Study (abstract and all) will be the last date you pay any tuition. It will still appear like you are active in class for the rest of the semester, at times the following semester, but this is because the Office of the Registrar always performs their final degree audit and validates your degree on the last day of the semester that the CAO approves your Study. At that time, any of the tuition you "accrued" after the CAO approval date is removed from your billing statement and the degree is conferred. That future course will also be dropped during the conferral process.
