Graduate Degrees, Programs, Licensure, and Credit
Graduate Credit Hour Limits
The maximum number of credit hours for which graduate students may register in a quarter is 16. In a summer term of five weeks, nine hours is a maximum.
Students holding graduate assistantships must register for a minimum of eight quarter hours of graduate credit during each quarter they hold the appointment. Predoctoral fellows and students holding Graduate Tuition Scholarships are required to register for a minimum of 12credit hours.
Students who wish to deviate from the normal registration loads listed above must have the approval of the program advisor and the School of Graduate Studies.
A graduate student who is employed full time should normally register for no more than two courses per quarter. This should be determined by the student and the faculty advisor based on such factors as the studentÍs employment and its effect on the studentÍs energy and mental alertness, the studentÍs previous academic records, and the nature of the course taken.
