Course Overload

Students in all programs may schedule up to nine (9) hours of course credit per semester without special permission. Some graduate programs permit students to take as many as twelve hours without special permission. A student who wishes to register for a course load exceeding the maximum permitted load in his or her program of study must submit a written overload request to the program director for approval by the Dean of the School of Graduate Studies. In general, a student must have been at Clayton State University for at least one semester and have achieved an overall B (GPA 3.0) average before an overload will be approved although the Graduate Dean may make exceptions in special circumstances.
