Course Load

Regular Semester

A graduate student who is enrolled in 9 or more semester hours of graduate work in a regular semester is classified as full-time; a normal course load is 9 to 12 semester hours of graduate work.  A graduate student may register for more than 12 semester hours of graduate course work in a regular semester only with the approval of the academic dean.   An overload form may be obtained from The Office of Records and Registration or online at:  http://www.winthrop.edu/recandreg.  The recommended maximum course load for a student holding a full graduate assistantship is 9 semester hours of graduate work per semester.

Summer Session

A graduate student may  enroll for one graduate-level course in Maymester (a short term held in May prior to the regular summer session).   In a 5- or 6-week term (or the two terms concurrently) a graduate student may enroll for 7 semester hours of graduate work. During the 10-week term, a graduate student may enroll for 12 semester hours. Exceptions to the above loads must be approved by the student's dean.  An overload form may be obtained from The Office of Records and Registration.
