Class Load

The institution considers a normal full-time class load as being 12-19 semester hours. Any student desiring to take more than 19 semester hours will be considered carrying an overload for that semester and must meet one of the following provisions: 

  1. First-semester freshmen may take an additional 3 hours if they have an overall 3.5 high school grade average and an ACT composite score of 25.
  2. All other students may register for up to 24 hours, provided that they have completed a minimum of 12 semester hours, have a cumulative grade point average of 3.0, and have approval of the Dean.
  3. Students on probation may take no more than 12 hours.
  4. A minimum of 12 semester hours is required to be classified a full-time student.

No student will be approved for more than 24 credit hours in any one term for any reason.
