II. Course Load

 

A. Enrollment Status

A full-time student is one who is enrolled for 12 or more credit hours/equivalent credit hours during the fall/spring semester. A part-time student is enrolled in fewer than 12 credit hours/equivalent credit hours during the fall/spring semester. Full-time students are encouraged to register for a minimum of 15 credits.

B. Maximum Credit Load

A student may register for a maximum of 19 credit hours during the fall/spring semester. A Summer Session student may register for a maximum of 8 credit hours during a 5-week session or 11 credit hours during a 10-week session. Summer registration in both day and evening sessions will not include more than 9 credit hours concurrently.

For course sessions other than those above, the maximum number of credits for which a student may register is equal to the number of weeks in the session.

Exceptions: Registering for more than the maximum credit load is allowed only under special circumstances. Advisor approval is required after certification of student grade point average and credit hours by the Office of Registration and Records. Permission will not be granted to any student with a cumulative program index less than 3.0 or a student who has earned fewer than 12 credit hours.
