It is common for students registering for a Maymester course to register for over 17 hours in the spring. For example, a student taking 15 hours during the spring semester plus a three-hour Maymester Abroad course registers for a total of 18 hours in the spring semester.
The Maymester course(s) does not affect the max hours registration limit for undergraduates. Issues with registering for more than 17 hours should be reported to the program coordinator.
A graduating senior may participate in a Maymester. If the course credit is not needed to fulfill an outstanding degree requirement, the student can apply to graduate in the spring. Students who need the course to fulfill their last degree requirement may participate in the program. After successful completion of the course, the student can complete the process for in absentia graduation in August.
Graduate students register and pay graduate tuition/fee rates for the Maymester course(s). For example, a graduate student taking nine hours during the spring semester and a three-hour Maymester will register and pay for 12 hours in the spring semester.
If the Maymester has an International Learning Seminar during the spring semester, graduate students are not required to register for the International Learning Seminar; however, attendance is required.
Graduate students must check with their graduate advisor as to the maximum hours allowed in the spring semester. The general rule for grad students is 15 hours maximum; however, schools or colleges are able to set stricter caps. Any student that would exceed the maximum set by their school/college must contact their graduate advisor to request they submit a petition to exceed the max hours allowed.
Students not registered by the 12th class day of spring (Feb. 4) are not official program participants. Their study abroad status is changed to “failed to register,” effectively withdrawing the student from the program. Non-registered students are not eligible for program financial aid or program amenities (housing, courses, activities, etc.).
