Academic Course Load
The average semester load for full-time students is 15 to 17 semester (or credit) hours. Students must carry at least 12 semester hours to be classified as full time.
Academic overloads (19 or more semester hours) during fall and spring semesters need special approval of the dean or dean's designee of the school or college in which a student is matriculated. Tuition for full-time students covers 12 to 18 hours. Credits over 18 carry additional tuition charges. See Tuition and Fees in the Financial Information section of the Bulletin.
Undergraduates must get overload approval for 9 credits or more.
