Student Course Load

Full-time students are expected to carry 12 to 16 credit hours each semester. Students who wish to enroll in more than 16 credit hours must receive the approval of the vice president for academic affairs and pay the required fee for the additional hours. Students may not exceed 18 credit hours.

A request for a course overload is considered primarily for students who have earned 60 or more credit hours and have a cumulative GPA of 2.5 or higher. A request does not mean it will be approved. Students carrying less than 12 hours will be considered part-time students. Students on academic probation are advised to enroll in less than 15 credit hours for the semester.
