Graduate Program - Modes of Study

Students can be admitted on a full-time or a part-time basis, depending on the program of study.

During the taught courses portion of a program, full-time study involves registration in 3–4 courses (9–12 credit-hours) per semester, whereas part-time study typically involves registration in 2 courses (6 credit-hours) per semester. Registration during the Summer term is limited to a maximum of 2 courses (6 credit-hours). Enrollment in credit loads below/above these standard limits requires advance written approval.

During the project/research part of a program, part-time students are required to attend the University for weekly meetings with their supervisor. Employers should, however, try to enable their students to attend the University for one day a week. This is particularly important for experimentally based projects.
