Students should consult their Director of Graduate Studies and/or advisor for guidance regarding course enrollment and degree requirements. Students must initiate all requests for information and approval processes through their respective departments. 

Students are required to register for a minimum of twelve credit hours through the online Student Information System by the stated deadline each term in order to maintain full-time status. These credit hours may be comprised of a combination of courses and non-topical research. First-year graduate students are expected to complete 18 graded (A-F grading basis) by the end of their first year.  

A master’s candidate who wishes to enroll part-time must make this request in writing via e-mail to the Director of Graduate Studies, who will forward the request to the Graduate School with endorsement if appropriate.
