Reduced-Load Program

The University of Memphis Cecil C. Humphreys School of Law offers a reduced-load program which enables students to enroll in fewer hours than full-time students. This is not an evening program. Reduced-load students attend classes during the day with full-time students. Students are not able to choose the day and time of courses.

Reduced-load students normally graduate in 4 or 4 1/2 years (including summer semesters).  In the first year, part-time students are required to take 10 credit hours during the fall semsester and 11 credit hours during the spring semester.  In subsequent years, reduced-load students are required to enroll in at least 8 hours, but no more than 11 hours, each semester, for a total of 90 hours.   

Graduation requirements in the reduced-load program are the same as the full-time program.  The current Academic Regulations are available here.
