Course Load


Undergraduate students are classified full-time if they schedule 12 or more semester hours for credit (not including audits). However, during a regular semester, a schedule of 15 to 18 semester hours is considered a standard load. Academic deans, at their discretion, may allow the student to schedule more than 18 semester hours. During the summer term, a schedule of six hours per session is considered a normal load; however, students are classified full-time if they schedule (for credit) four or more semester hours. Maximum load is seven semester hours in a summer session; developmental students may schedule eight semester hours if one five-hour developmental course is scheduled along with a three semester hour course. Academic deans, at their discretion, may allow the student to schedule more semester hours.

The credit hour load for student teachers registered for six or more hours of student teaching is limited to fifteen semester hours except as approved by the Dean of the College of Arts, Education and Sciences. The University does not guarantee that during a given enrollment period a student will be able to schedule every class which he or she might be required or wish to take.

NOTE: See the section on the Graduate School for regulations concerning course load for graduate students.
