For Students in the Part-Time Program

The Office of the Registrar will typically assign and register students into the below-listed courses, which are scheduled during the day. Please note that the sequencing of courses may change.

**Students are advised that scheduling flexibility is not unlimited and that there will be certain instances where part-time students will need to arrange their personal and work schedules to attend certain required courses and other graduation requirements when the school schedules those courses and requirements.

During the semesters in which the Academic Skills Course [1 credit], the Legal Skills Course [2 credits], Business Associations [4 credits], or Wills, Trusts & Estates [4 credits] is taken, a part-time student may register for a total semester course load of 13 credit hours without any additional tuition charge.
