Part-time Enrollment

At UCSF, all certificate and degree programs are full time.

The dean of the Graduate Division or a designated representative may approve part-time enrollment for graduate academic students, with the accompanying fee reductions, only for reasons of occupation, family responsibilities, or health.

Part-time students pay the full Students Services Fee, one half of the Tuition charge, and one half of any Professional Degree Supplemental Tuition. Nonresident part-time students pay one half of the Nonresident Supplemental Tuition charge.

To initiate reduction in fees, an approved application for part-time enrollment must be filed with the Office of the Registrar by the published deadline and before paying fees. The maximum number of units is six per quarter.

The application for Part-Time enrollment is valid only for one quarter at a time.
