Course Load Limitations

Graduate students in good academic standing may enroll for up to the maximum course load per semester or cohort term as defined by the individual graduate program.

Each graduate Program Director will recommend to the dean of the school that houses the program the maximum number of credits per semester or cohort term. The dean will communicate that decision to the Registrar.

  1. Permission to exceed the course load limit must be secured from the Graduate Program Director, who will communicate the information to the Registrar.
  2. Graduate students on academic probation should discuss their course loads with their Graduate Program Directors prior to registration.
  3. Graduate students with student loans should discuss their course loads with the Office of Financial Aid prior to registration.
  4. Non-degree students may only take up to two courses. To take additional courses, students must be admitted to a program.
