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.
