A student is classified as full-time provided s/he is registered for at least 12 credits for fall or spring, and at least 1 hour in January.

A traditional student is not permitted to enroll for more than 16 credit hours during the fall or spring semesters, or more than 4 credits during the January term without the written permission of the appropriate school dean. Overload forms may be picked up at the University Registrar’s Office. Half semester and summer school loads may not exceed 8 credit hours without the same permission. A tuition overload fee is charged for each hour of overload.
