All full-time students must carry a minimum course load of 12 credits per semester (or four courses). If a student is carrying only 12 credits then they are not allowed to drop a course and if they are dropped from a course for reason of non-attendance they will receive an FA in that course.
The normal and recommended study load is 15 credit hours. Students who maintain a cumulative grade point average (CGPA) of 3.00 or greater may enroll in up to 21 credits. Such a load is extremely heavy and is normally not advised.
Six credit hours is the maximum load for the six-week summer session. Students with a CGPA of 3.00 or higher or expecting to graduate at the end of the summer session are permitted to take three courses (nine credits). During intersessions students can take only one course (three credits). The maximum number of courses that can be given credit during the summer is four irrespective of where they are taken.
