ACADEMIC CREDIT HOUR
1. What is the definition of an academic credit hour?
One semester academic credit hour is the equivalent to a minimum of 700 minutes of instruction (50 minutes X 14 weeks), exclusive of time for final examination. This is equivalent to 35 hours of instruction plus time for final examination for a three credit-hour course.
2. How many credits may a student enroll in each semester?
During a regular fall or spring semester, a normal full-time load for a semester is from 12 to 18 semester hours; however, the total credit hours a student is permitted to enroll in is determined by the academic record of the individual student. Students who have a grade point average of 3.00 or higher may register for 18 semester hours. Students who have a grade point average lower than 2.00 may register for a maximum of 16 semester hours. Students may register for additional credit hours only if an Overload of Credit Form is approved by their advisor, department chairperson and dean.
During a summer session or winter session between semesters, the credit load is determined by the number of weeks in the session. Students may take up to three semester hours during a three-week session and up to six semester hours during a five-week session.
Graduate students may enroll in 15 credits per semester.
