The University defines full-time status for a graduate student as eight hours minimum per semester.
A graduate student who needs to maintain full-time status should register for research hours if they have a compelling reason for being unable to enroll for at least eight hours of coursework. Contact the Graduate Studies Coordinator with any questions.
Ph.D. students register for research hours when they are studying for qualifying exams.
Graduate Students must email requests for research hours to the Graduate Studies Coordinator.
