Course Load Limitations Links of Interest

Fifteen semester hours of coursework is the maximum load for students devoting full time to graduate study during regular sessions. The maximum total number of hours of graduate course work for which a graduate student may enroll during the Summer Session is 9.

Those who register for 9 or more hours per semester in the academic year will be considered full-time students. University-funded graduate assistants must register for no fewer than 9 hours credit per semester (or 6 thesis/dissertation hours) in both the Fall and Spring terms.

Requests for overloads must be approved by the director of graduate studies in the student’s college or school. Students in the School of Communication Sciences and Disorders must obtain the approval of the director of graduate studies in that school.
