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:
- 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.
- 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.
- Students on probation may take no more than 12 hours.
- 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.
