The MBA program is a full-time program. To complete the 60-hour program in two years, the normal course load is 15 hours per semester. A day student must successfully complete at least 9 hours of new coursework per semester to remain in good standing. A student making application for financial aid (TAP, loans, etc.) should contact the Financial Aid Office. “Full time” is interpreted to mean 12 hours of credit-bearing registration per semester for financial aid and immigration requirements. Full-time MBA students may register for up to 19 hours per regular semester. Permission must be requested in writing, to your advisor, in the Graduate Programs Office (203 Alfiero) to register for more than 19 hours and will only be granted under exceptional circumstances.
