Course Registration Overload

All MALD, LLM, and MA students are allowed to take 13.5 credits only ONCE during their Fletcher career.* All MIB students are allowed to register for 15.0 credits twice during their Fletcher career and may register for 15.5 credits ONCE (usually done during the semester following the pre-session course).

For MALDs, LLMs, and MAs who want to register for a course that will put the semester course load over the 12.0 credit limit set on SIS, students must email the Registrar’s Office at fletcherregistrar@tufts.edu with their additional course SIS number (the five-digit number in parentheses), section, and course name. The course will then be added to their record.

*Please note that if a student takes 13.5 credits in one semester, then the student may take 10.5 credits in a subsequent semester. However, the student will still have to pay for 12.0 credits and that missed 1.5 course credit cannot be made up in a following semester (i.e. take a 13.5 credit overload again).
