Handbook - Course Load
The number of credits a student takes each semester should be decided after considering the student's ability, the number or individual courses, the difficulty and time involvement of the courses, the number of hours per week the student works, and the number of other involvements the student has.
Only the unusual student should be allowed an overload. The student should be aware that there is an additional tuition charge for each credit over eighteen.
For more information about credit loads, see Registration under the Academic Information and Policies in the Undergraduate Catalog.
