Course Load

Sixteen hours of university work per semester is considered the normal student load.

Maximum load for any one semester is as follows:


  • Fall and Spring Semesters: 18 semester hours
  • Winter Term: 4 semester hours
  • Summer Term I: 8 semester hours
  • Summer Term II: 8 semester hours


If a student wishes to register for more than a term’s maximum load, he/she must submit an Advisor Overload Approval form. If the request is approved, the Registrar will permit the student to register for the specified hours.

A student whose cumulative GPA is less than 3.0 may not register for overload hours in any term.
