About the Data
For Grad students, the total includes credits for a given term that will potentially apply toward a graduate degree and count in Graduate School requirements for full-time status. The total includes both graded (whether passed or not) and in-progress credits. Excluded are pass/fail, audit, and courses below the 300 level.
The basic calculation is: For students with Student Type =Grad only. Unt_Taken_Prgrss minus all credits for the same term with a grading basis of NCA or PF AND status of E (to avoid dropped courses).
For non-Grad Students, Eligible Credits = total credits minus audit courses and minus courses below the 300 level.
For students with dual student types, the student type is determined by the higher (professional) degree. For a MEDS/GRAD student, the type is considered MEDS and the Eligible Credit is calculated as a Non-Grad student.
Project/Program Assistants (PAs) and Teaching Assistants (TAs): Non-dissertators must enroll for at least 2 graduate-level credits during the fall and spring terms; dissertators for 3 graduate-level credits. The Graduate School has no enrollment requirement for the summer session, but individual departments/programs may, so students should contact their department/program if they are PAs in the summer.
Research Assistants (RAs), Fellows, Trainees: Non-dissertators must enroll for at least 8 graduate level credits during the fall and spring terms, and 2 graduate-level credits during the eight week summer session; dissertators must enroll for 3 graduate-level credits during the fall, spring and the eight-week summer session.
Courses numbered below 300, audits, and pass/fail do not satisfy any of the above enrollment requirements.
Schools, colleges, departments and programs may establish more stringent minimum enrollment criteria. International graduate students may have additional requirements.
Student Data and appointment data is updated nightly.
