    *For financial aid purposes, a full-time graduate student is defined as any student taking nine (9) or more credits per semester (fall and spring). During the summer, all students are charged per credit regardless of the number of credits registered. Students who schedule less than 9 are considered part-time and charged per credit ($516, in-state students; $774, out-of-state students). For financial aid, students must be registered for 4.5 credits each semester, as this is the amount that the graduate school recognizes as full-time status. All students, regardless of financial need, register for 4.5 credits per semester.
