Program Load

Students are advised to assume credit and course loads that consider the time and energy demands required for their studies in addition to those imposed by employment and other responsibilities.  For example, students engaged in full-time employment are advised to limit their program of study to two courses during the Fall and Spring semesters and one course in each summer session.  Generally, it is recommended that full-time students take no more than 15 credit hours during each of Fall and Spring semesters.

All international students studying at Pace University on student visas are required to enroll in a full-time program each Fall and Spring semester in order to comply with the regulations of the U. S. Immigration Service.

For information on the length of time required to complete a particular graduate program, consult Pace University website for the degree requirements.
