Students should register for no more than 16 hours in any semester. A student enrolled in the summer may not register for, and will not receive graduate credit for, more than eight hours a session. Overload requests are considered on an exceptional basis and should be initiated by the student’s academic program and forwarded to The Graduate School for approval. Please see the Graduate School Handbook for further details.

Dissertation, thesis or master’s paper hours must be taken for a minimum of three credits in a semester and are considered a full-time load with or without other courses. Please see the Graduate School Handbook for further details.
