Please complete the form—the form is interactive—simply fill in the information—hit the 'submit form' button at the very end of the form—follow the e-mail instructions. The system will e-mail the completed forms to the School of Graduate Studies office for completion. The School of Graduate Studies office will respond to the e-mail letting the student know that they are registered for classes list on the form.

For enrollment certification purposes, nine credits shall constitute a standard, full load during the fall and spring semesters and five credits during the summer session. Six credits shall constitute a full-time load during the fall and spring semesters for students receiving a graduate assistantship and for students enrolled in six or more credits of practicum. Three credits of a Thesis, Seminar Paper or Capstone Project, shall also constitute a full-time load. This three-credit option cannot be applied for more than two semesters. Full-time status for other purposes, such as financial aid, may be defined differently.

Overloads: Graduate students are allowed to register for six credits during the summer sessions and nine credits during the fall/spring semesters. In order to register for additional credits, (up to 9 credits during summer sessions and 12 credits during fall/spring semesters), students must have approval of their advisors. Approval may be sent to the School of Graduate Studies Office by mail, fax, e-mail, or in person. Permission must include the student's name, semester, and the amount of credits allowed. A graduate student who wishes to add more than 9 credits for the summer session or 12 credits for the fall/spring semesters will need the additional approval (beyond the advisor's approval) of Craig Wilson, Dean of the School of Graduate Studies.

Drop and Add: Changes in your schedule will be handled through the Drop/Add Sessions.
