The normal course load is 16 credits. During the first semester at the university, a first-year student is limited to 17 credits. Students may take no more than 21 credits without endorsement of their faculty advisor, who will forward to the dean for approval.
First-year students may not register for courses numbered 300 or above without permission from the department chair (except for foreign language courses when they have already completed a fourth semester of the language or its equivalent).
Students on academic probation may not register for more than 16 credits.
