A student should not take more than 10 credits during each 8-week session. Students wishing to register for more than 20 credits during a fall or spring semester will need the approval of their Student Success Advisor. This limitation is based on the expectation that each credit in which you are enrolled in during an 8-week session will require up to 5 hours per week to complete. Taking 10 credits during an 8-week session will require approximately 50 hours of time each week.
