Credit Hour Load Policy
An undergraduate student may not enroll for more than 19 semester credit hours during a fall or spring semester or more than 17 semester credit hours during the summer, including Maymester. Exceptions require the approval of the department chairperson/program director/associate dean. Exceptions will only be considered if additional course work is in the best interests of the student, the student is in good academic standing, and has a grade point average of 3.0 or higher for the last two semesters. Students are expected to prepare for classes with a minimum of two to three hours of study for each credit hour.
When in doubt, see your advisor. Your academic advisor can assist you with creating a schedule that works for you!
