Course Load

Students at the graduate level may elect a maximum of 12 credit hours in a 15-week semester and a maximum of 8 credit hours in a 7-week semester. For graduate programs, individual colleges may impose a lower limit than this campus wide policy. All students should contact their college for policies and procedures regarding electing hours in excess of the maximum.


Students will not be allowed to register if they have a hold. A hold could result from having outstanding financial obligations to the University, academic probation, mandatory advising or other academic or non-academic conditions that require resolution prior to registration. Students can check their holds on UM-Dearborn Connect. See the “View Your Holds” page located in the secure area under the Student Accounts menu.
