Academic Load

The maximum load that an undergraduate student will normally be permitted to carry is 18 hours per semester. Students attaining a Retention/Graduation grade-point average of at least 3.0 and having completed a minimum of 15 semester hours will be permitted to carry up to a maximum of 21 hours during the next semester. Verification that the above criteria have been satisfied will be provided by the Office of the Registrar.

During the summer session nine hours of work is the normal maximum load. Ten hours may be taken provided the student has attained an overall grade-point average of 3.0 and has completed a minimum of 15 semester hours. Verification that the above criteria have been satisfied will be provided by the Office of the Registrar.

Permission of the Dean of the School within which the student is majoring will be required for all other overload situations.

In the event of dual enrollment by a student at more than one institution, the preceding load limits apply to all college courses in which the student is enrolled.
