Course Enrollment Restrictions

  1. Freshmen who have fewer than 24 semester hours may not take a course on the 2000-level except when the actual prerequisites for the courses have been fulfilled. Sophomores may take 3000-level courses and juniors may take 4000-level courses when the prerequisites for the courses have been fulfilled.
  2. Students are limited to a maximum of three enrollments in a specific 3000- or 4000-level course (See item #3 under General Degree Requirements for a Baccalaureate Degree).

This rule will not apply to courses that may be repeated for credit when topics vary.

  4. International Students holding F-1 Visas: No more than the equivalent of one on-line/distance education class or 3 credits per session may count towards the "full course of study" requirement.
