To be classified as full time, a student must enroll for at least 12 semester hours in a regular semester and four semester hours in a summer term. Audited and correspondence courses do not contribute toward a full-time load. The maximum load a full-time undergraduate student may carry during any semester is 18 credit hours including audited courses.
Enrollment in 19 to 21 credit hours is considered an overload. Undergraduate students desiring to register for an overload must:
- Have a 3.25 in the previous semester or overall cumulative GPA.
- Have the approval of the academic advisor and the appropriate college dean.
- Pay additional tuition per credit hour over 18 hours.
It is expected that no student shall be allowed to enroll in more than 21 hours in a regular semester and seven hours in a summer session.
