Registration Information

The minimum load for full-time undergraduate students is 12 US/24 ECTS credit hours per semester. Students may register for up to 18 US/36 ECTS credit hours in a semes­ter without special approval. If a student wishes to enroll for more than 18 US/36 ECTS credit hours in a semester the student must receive the written permission of the Provost. A student may enroll in the university as a part-time student, which means that the student registers for fewer than 12 US/24 ECTS credit hours per semester. A stu­dent may study part-time for no more than 7 semesters, at which point the student must enroll full-time to complete the degree or leave the university.
