3.1 - Academic Workload

There are limits on the maximum number of credit hours a student may enroll in each semester.

Undergraduate students may enroll in up to twenty (20) hours during the fall and spring semesters and up to ten (10) hours in a summer session.  With the dean's approval, an undergraduate student may enroll in up to twenty-four (24) hours during a fall or spring semester, or up to twelve (12) hours in a summer term.

Graduate students may enroll in up to sixteen (16) hours in the fall and spring semesters and up to nine (9) hours in a summer session.

Professional students should check on specific enrollment policies with the college dean’s office.

The maximum student overload in any given semester or term is limited to a number of semester-credit-hours which is 50 percent greater than the total number of weeks in the applicable academic term.  A student simultaneously enrolled in two or more institutions should not exceed the standards set forth in this policy.
