Maximum Semester Hours

Undergraduate students may not register for more than 17 hours in any long-session semester (or 14 hours in the summer) without the approval of the dean. Criteria to raise maximum hours: 

  • During the initial registration period, seniors graduating in one or two consecutive semesters may receive permission to add courses required to graduate.  Summer and fall graduates should email Ask Libby during the initial registration period to make this request. 
  • Students who are not graduating seniors must have earned at least 42 grade points during either the fall 2019 or spring 2020 semester to be eligible.  Students must wait until June add/drop (for summer) and August add/drop (for fall) to make these requests via email Ask Libby; early requests will not be considered.
