Graduate Student Handbook


Entering graduate students register during the official registration period posted under the “Registration Timetable” for the relevant semester. Registration for classes is done using the STAR for Students system by tapping on the tab “STAR GPS Registration”. Students may also register in the period just prior to the start of fall classes, or in the case of programs that begin in the spring or summer, prior to the beginning of the semester.

Continuing graduate students are encouraged to participate in early registration whenever possible. Graduate students must meet general guidelines for tuition and fee payments set by the university.

Full-Time Registration Requirements for Students

Graduate students must register for six or more credits during the Fall or Spring semesters and, when applicable, three credits during the summer to be considered full time.

International students must be enrolled for at least 6 credits in each regular semester of the graduate program. Please check with the International Student Services Office for details.
