Freshmen or sophomores registering for more than 18 credits during any semester (nine credits during a summer session) must fill out an excess credit form. This form must be signed by both the student’s advisor and their respective college dean. No student may register for more than 20 credits without an excess credit permit.


Students must carry a reasonable course load to be successful.
