Course Load

The course load (academic load) refers to the number of credit hours in which a student is enrolled for a given semester. All undergraduate students registered for at least 12 credit hours during a fall or spring semester, eight credit hours during a Summer II or III summer session, or four credit hours during a Summer I or IV summer session are classified as full-time students. Summer classification status is defined differently for financial aid purposes. The maximum number of credit hours for which a student can register is determined by the college of his or her major. Consult the Undergraduate Studies catalog or Class Schedule Catalog for information regarding maximum course load.

International students should contact International Student and Scholar Services for additional information about course load requirements.
