While GPS is a part-time program, and most of our students take only one or two courses per term, some students occasionally request to take a greater course load. Students may request to take three courses (no more than 9 credits) in a given term, which is subject to approval by the GPS office. The GPS office strongly discourages students from taking more than two courses (6 credits) in a term. Students who wish to take more than two courses in a term do so at their own discretion, and are subject to the academic, withdrawal and refund policies as set forth in the GPS Student Handbook.
Please use the Full-Time Student Request Form to request to take three courses (9 credits). Requests must be received during the regular Registration Period, and will be reviewed by the GPS staff. If a request is approved, you will receive an email directing you to contact the GPS office with your additional course selections. Students may only register for two courses using SAGE, and an additional third course must be approved and processed by the GPS staff.
