What’s Considered Part-time?

Part-time students may enroll in a maximum of six credits, which is typically two courses per semester. For master’s programs, part-time students may take up to five years to complete the degree. If you decide you would like to change your enrollment status to full time at some point, you can do so by obtaining department approval and submitting official GRE scores.

Part-time Studies That Meet All Your Needs

Our master’s and doctorate programs are constantly evolving to incorporate the latest practices, which provides you with a competitive edge professionally. Several of our master’s programs are offered in an "executive format," in which all required courses are taken on evenings and weekends. In addition, you are permitted to complete up to three courses before formally matriculating in a degree or certificate program.
