Accessing Online Courses Before the Start of Each Term The date on which graduate online course content will be available for student access before the start of each term differs by program and School. Students should check the respective academic sections of the graduate catalog or contact their program advisor for the specific access date for the courses in their program. Classification of Students Graduate students are classified by the number of hours for which they are enrolled, as follows: • Full-time students are those who have met the requirements for admission as determined by the Graduate Admissions Committee, have been admitted to a degree program, and are carrying at least six semester hours of credit in that academic semester. • Part-time students are those who have met the requirements for admission as determined by the Graduate Admissions Committee, have been admitted to a degree program, and are taking fewer than six semester hours. • Nondegree-seeking students are those who are taking graduate courses but have not yet been admitted to a specific degree program or do not intend to work toward a graduate degree. Credit Hour Equivalences - Graduate Clinical/ Practicum, Field Experiences, and Internships The credit hour equivalency requirements for graduate clinical/ practicum, field experiences, and internships differ by program and School. Students should check the respective academic sections of the graduate catalog or contact their program or faculty advisor for the specific requirements for their program. Controlling Catalog The Graduate Catalog in use when a student first enrolls in a graduate degree program governs his/her graduation requirements, unless that catalog is over five years old or that student has left and then sought to re-enroll more than two years later. Consequently, that catalog should be retained and used as a guide in case changes are made in course or graduation requirements during the time the student is enrolled. A student may select a subsequent catalog if the student wishes, but all requirements from that catalog must be completed.
