Can a graduate student take courses while registered for Dissertation credits?

  • The university expects graduate students to have finished all of their coursework by the time they begin registering for Dissertation credits.
  • In rare cases (e.g., Clinical Practicum, Supervised Clinical Experience), students can register for coursework while registering for Dissertation credits. However, if a student needs to register for more than 1 CH, the Graduate Coordinator needs to request and justify a course overload to the Dean.
