Students who enroll in twelve or more hours in a semester are considered full-time students. A minimum of twelve credit hours is considered full-time for fall, spring and summer semesters. Students who wish to take more than seventeen hours and who have demonstrated exceptional academic achievement may submit an Overload Request form, available on the Forms page. Overload requests must be approved and signed by a student’s academic advisor, the Vice-President for Academic Affairs, and the Registrar. These signatures must be obtained prior to registration.
