Normal course load is 15 hours. The maximum hours allowed is 18 hours and the minimum is 12 hours to be considered full-time.
Undeclared Majors are required to have their Advisor’s signature. Declared Majors are required to have their Advisor and Department chairperson’s signatures.
Both Declared and Undeclared have the same GPA requirements for an overload.
- 19 hours – 3.00-3.25 GPA
- 20 hours – 3.26-3.75 GPA
- 21 hours – 3.76-4.00 GPA
Permission may be written on the Registration Form or on a separate sheet, but this is required before extra hours will be added to a schedule.
NOTE: Students lacking the appropriate GPA for an overload must obtain the advisor, chairperson, and academic dean’s signature in order to take an overload.
Cost for Overloads
There is a charge for each hour of credit above 18 hours. Please refer to the College Catalog for this cost.
