Classification of Students

Enrollment Load

Twelve semester hours is the minimum enrollment load to be classified as full time. Less than 12 hours is classified as part time: 9, 10 or 11 semester hours is three-quarter time; six, seven or eight semester hours is half time; fewer than six semester hours is less than half time.

Enrollment for more than 18 semester hours constitutes an overload and is permitted only for students with a cumulative GPA of 3.00 or higher. Exceptions must be approved by the registrar or designee. Hourly rate tuition is charged for overloads. Some services provided by students are awarded a semester credit hour but are not included in the credit hour count for overload. Examples are: Peer Tutoring Seminar, Communications Workshop, and several musical ensembles.
