Academic Load

  • The normal semester load for graduate students is nine (9) semester credit hours in any combination of graduate  and  undergraduate  hours.     (Some programs   require   prerequisite   undergraduate courses prior to regular admission).
  • A  graduate  student  must  carry  nine (9)  or  more graduate semester credit hours to be full time, five (5) to eight (8) graduate semester hours to be half time, and less than five (5) graduate semester credit hours to be less than half time.  A graduate student enrolled in fewer than 9 graduate credit hours is considered part-time.
  • A graduate student in good standing may pursue a maximum of twelve (12) semester credit hours during the fall or spring semester of the academic year for which he/she is a candidate for graduation.
  • A graduate student may pursue a maximum of six (6) semester   credit   hours   during   the   summer session.
