Maximum Course Load and Credit Overload

Students are typically limited to enrolling for no more than 18 credits during any semester (fall, spring, summer). Sub-sessions (e.g. A & B terms) within any semester have a maximum credit limit of nine hours.

Credit Overload

Students in good standing who desire to take more than 18 credit hours must obtain approval from the Director of Academic Advising. Determinations for approval are based on an individual basis, reviewing the combination of courses being requested, the student's previous course work attempted, number of credits attempted in previous semesters, grade point average earned (minimum 3.0 for both semester and cumulative is required) and commitments outside of courses (numbers of hours working, family obligations, etc.).
