New Registration Policy

The number of ECE courses graduate students may register for in a single semester will be limited to a maximum of three ECE courses. The limit is placed on ECE graduate course work only (i.e. 400-491; 500-594). The limit is not placed on ECE 595, ECE 598 or ECE 599. Furthermore, if an ECE course is crosslisted with another program, students must take the course under the ECE rubric and it will count towards the limit allowed. Students must not take the course under the other program. For example: A student is interested in taking ECE 466 but decides to register for CS 466 instead. There will be no degree credit for CS 466; the student must register for ECE 466 and it will count towards the limit of three ECE courses.

The policy will be enforced as follows:

Students who want to register for more than three courses need to obtain DGS approval.

Students who are registered for more than three courses without DGS approval will have a registration hold placed on their account. A hold will prohibit any further registration (add or drop). The department will then work with the Graduate College to drop students from courses so that the total number of ECE courses is reduced to three. The department will decide which courses will be dropped.
