Graduate students formally admitted to the university by the Dean of Graduate Studies
are considered matriculated and can register for full-time (9-15 credits) or part-time
(fewer than 9 credits) enrollment. Students who register for 9 or more credits are
charged the full-time graduate rate. Students who register for fewer than 9 credits
are charged the part-time rate and must pay in full at the time of registration. All
students are responsible for tuition or fee increases that occur before the first
day of classes.
Students not formally accepted by the Dean of Graduate Studies are considered non-matriculated and may only register for 9 credits or fewer. They are charged the per-credit rate. Non-matriculated students admitted to a graduate program at a later date may use only 9 of the credits earned as a non-matriculate toward their graduate degree.
Inactive or first-time, non-matriculated students must fill out the Quick Admit Form to be able to register online.
