3.17.1 – Procedure – Credit Load
Part 1: General
Credit load may vary from 1 to 18 credits in a regular term (Fall and Spring Semesters) depending on a student’s interest, ability and external obligations. Generally, full-time is considered 12 credits or more; however, 15-18 credits are needed during regular terms to complete most programs within the shortest possible time frame. Students wishing to take more than 18 credits in a regular term must submit a Petition with the written recommendation of an advisor for consideration by the Petition Committee. Students who are enrolled in both Reading 0455 and English 0450 are advised against enrolling in more than 12 credits.
Summer term is condensed into a shorter time period. Students are advised to take no more than 9 credits.
