303.3 - Course Loads and Course of Study

University Group Policy #303.3

I.  Policy Statement

An appropriate course load is dependent upon two factors: the scholastic ability of the student as reflected by his/her academic history and the time available for study. A course load of nine semester hours constitutes a normal full semester program for a graduate student. Nine (9) hours constitutes a full load for a graduate assistant, and a graduate assistant must register for at least six graduate-level semester hours during each semester.

II.     Applicability

This policy is applicable to graduate students at Winston-Salem State University.
