No student may be registered to take more than four credits of coursework in any three-week session. Students can consult with the Associate Academic Deans for permission to combine coursework at other institutions with an experience in the three-week session.

Students must submit a petition to the registrar requesting permission to overload under the following circumstances: the student wishes to take more than

  • 14 credits in a twelve-week session
  • 16 credits in summer school
  • 12 credits during the 10-weeks summer term
  • 8 credits during a five weeks summer term             

The petition must include the approval signature of the student’s advisor and an Associate Academic Dean.

Please note that no overload petitions for the 12-week session will be approved without students being registered for a course in the corresponding 3-week session.
