During the academic year, an average course load for undergraduate students is 15 credits per semester, which would allow for completion of 120 credits (the minimum requirement for a baccalaureate degree) in four years. Students typically may register for up to 19 credits in the fall and spring semesters. Consult the Office of Records & Registration for more information.

A semester workload of 12 credits is needed to maintain full-time status. The Offices of Student Financial Services, Residence Life, and Athletics, Wellness & Recreation, among others, require students to be full time to remain eligible for their services. Students who are considering dropping below 12 credits should consult with the appropriate offices about the impact of that action on their status.

Students may register for a combined maximum of 12 credits for all summer sessions and a maximum of 4 credits for Winter Session.
