Semester Course Load

  • Full-time student: 12 or more credits per semester
  • Part-time student: fewer than 12 credits per semester

The usual full-time semester load is 15-16 credits. Students of proven ability, as well as seniors in their last semester, may enroll for more than 18 credits only with the permission of the Undergraduate Dean.

Additional tuition (overload fee) is charged for credits above 18 per fall or spring term. See Tuition and Fees on for relevant information. Students on academic probation may not enroll for more than four courses (usually 13 credits) per term.
