Graduate students enrolled for 9 to 15 credits during any term are classified as full-time. Tuition and fees are charged at a flat rate. A graduate student enrolled for more than 15 credits during any term will be charged an overload tuition fee. A graduate student registered for less than 9 credits during a semester is considered part-time graduate student. Students registered for less than a full-time course load are charged tuition at a per-credit hour rate based on their classification and program. Evening students enrolled on a part-time basis, pay the same per-credit tuition and fees as day students.
