Normal Study Load

The normal course load for full-time students is 9 semester hours, or at least 15 semester hours during the regular academic year. The normal course load for part-time students is 3 to 8 semester hours. During summer terms students may not register for more than 18 credits or more than one laboratory science in any session without the express permission of the appropriate dean. Any graduate student who wishes to register for more than a normal course load must first receive approval from his or her advisor and the appropriate dean.
