Credit Load Policy

Matriculated students who have a cumulative grade point average of at least 2.0 may carry up to six courses, not to exceed 18 credits. Matriculated students who are on academic probation or with a cumulative GPA of less than 2.0 may carry up to four courses, not to exceed 13 credits, including any workshop referrals. Non-matriculated students may carry up to three courses, not to exceed 10 credits, provided they maintain a cumulative GPA of at least 2.0. Non-matriculated students on academic probation are limited to two courses, not to exceed eight credits. A maximum of two courses, not to exceed eight credits, is permitted in each Summer Session. A maximum of four credits in any single intersession term is permitted. 

Students are advised to assume credit and course loads that consider the time and energy demands imposed by employment and other outside responsibilities, and should limit their program of study to four courses, not to exceed 13 credit hours, provided they maintain a cumulative GPA of at least 2.0. Those on scholastic probation who have substantial outside responsibilities should limit their course load to two courses, not to exceed eight credits, including any workshop referrals. Any exception to the above credit load policy must be approved by the dean of the school in which the student is enrolled.

Note: A required remedial workshop has the demands and responsibilities equivalent to a two to three credit course, and should be considered as such when determining how many credit hours to register for, and how much time outside of the classroom will be needed to handle your academic responsibilities.
