Long-Term Plans


Sample Plans for Completing the MPA Program


Once admitted to the MPA program, students are strongly encouraged to consult with Dr. Ford ( about creating a plan with courses for the successful completion of the MPA program.

The majority of MPA students prefer taking 2 courses per semester plus 1 course during summers.

If students are receiving financial aid or GI benefits they may find the UW Oshkosh Graduate Studies definitions below helpful in developing their plans for completing the MPA program.

Full-Time Students

Full-time graduate students are enrolled in nine (9) credits for the fall or spring semester, or at least five (5) credits in the summer session.

If a student is a Graduate Assistant, they are considered full-time with six (6) credits during the fall or spring semester, and three (3) credits in the summer session

Part-Time Students

A student has part-time status as long as they are taking at least 1/2 of the 9 credits needed to be considered full-time.
That is, each semester during the Fall and Spring terms, for all MPA students–whether they are first-semester students or returning ones–they need to take a minimum of 2 courses per semester (or 6 credits) to meet the 4.5 credit requirement for part-time.
In the summer, a 3-credit course will meet the part-time requirement because it is more than half of the 5 credits needed to be full-time during the summer.
