Graduate Degree Information

Academic Load

Nine units per semester is a normal academic load for a full‑time graduate student engaged in study toward a master's degree. If a candidate wishes to exceed this limit, it should be discussed with the departmental graduate advisor. The maximum load for graduate students working toward a master's degree is 16 units per semester. Students who are employed full‑time should not exceed six units per semester.

Graduate students who wish to register for more than one unit of credit per week of attendance during the summer session must secure advance approval from the college associate dean or director of graduate studies. Petition forms and information may be obtained in the college offices.
