Students may register for a single course or for a full-time college program. Students who register for 12 or more credit hours per semester (12 or more in the summer sessions) are full-time students. It is not recommended that a person employed full time take more than 6 credit hours of academic work during each regular semester, either in residence or in absentia, or more than 3 credit hours in each summer session.
Students who expect to graduate in four academic years, not counting summer sessions, should carry at least 15 credit hours during each semester of the regular academic year. Except with special permission from the divisional chairperson, a student is not permitted to carry more than 17 credit hours.
