The maximum number of hours for which a student may register without special permission from the Registrar's Ofﬁce is 18 for undergraduates (12 for summer session) and 16 for graduates (9 for summer session), including courses offered through the Division of Extended Programs and courses offered through other Oregon University System colleges. Exceptions to the maximum load for graduate students are allowed by petition with the recommendation of your advisor and approval of the Graduate Ofﬁce. Undergraduate students need to obtain their advisor recommendation and the approval of the registrar.
