Graduate Handbook - Residence Requirement
All doctoral students must meet the Graduate School's residence requirement. To satisfy this requirement, students must complete 8-12 graduate credits in each of two consecutive semesters, excluding summer sessions, or 6-8 graduate credits in each of three consecutive semesters, excluding summer sessions. Students cannot earn any residence credit while working toward the M.A. degree. Always check with the Associate Chair for Graduate Studies or the Graduate School if there are questions regarding the residence requirement.
