The date that you receive Chief Academic Officer (CAO) approval on your doctoral capstone will be the last date you pay any tuition.  It will still appear that you are active in class for the rest of the term, or even the following term, 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 term in which the CAO approved your dissertation.  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. The future course will also be dropped during the conferral process.
