Averroes MD Posted September 28, 2015 Share Posted September 28, 2015 (edited) Due to family reasons, I need to live in location X, but I am strongly considering a university in location Y (top tier program). I noted that the residency requirement is only 2 years. Moreover, the university has an Exchange Scholar program with Z university somewhat near X (where my family lives). Coursework done at Z university would count toward the PhD degree, and the website says it would reduce the residency requirement by one year.Am I reading this right? Does this mean that I could be living on campus for only one year of the 6+ year PhD program, and spend the remaining years using the library/resources of a university closer to my family?Obviously, this is a sup-optimal way to do things, but I am just wondering from a technical standpoint if it is possible or not.Hope this makes sense.Thanks!
