College of Education Policy on Graduate Course Load for Summer Semesters
During Summer Session, which includes Maymester, 9 hours (graduate or undergraduate/graduate combination) is considered a full graduate load for students in the College of Education. Special permission may be sought by the faculty advisor and the department chair for students to enroll for 12 hours. Moreover, it is expected that any department chair who decides to support a 12-hour load will consult carefully with the student, explaining to him or her the College's position as well as the workload challenges associated with a 12-hour load. Additionally, students should be apprised that instructors will not be expected to reduce course requirements for students enrolling in 12 hours. No student will be allowed to exceed 12 hours.
