Academic Course Load

The normal academic load for undergraduates is 16 hours per semester. The maximum load without special approval is 19 hours. If

you have a 3.25 (A=4.0) grade-point average or above for the preceding term, you may be allowed by the dean or director of your academic unit to exceed 19 hours. If you are on scholastic probation, you may not register for more than 12 hours without the approval of your adviser.

If you are receiving scholarships or other aid, contact Student Financial Aid to determine the course load requirements for this assistance. ISAC Monetary Award recipients may not include repeat classes for which a previous passing grade was received.
