SUMMER SESSION COURSE LOAD
During the summer, you can register for up to 16 total credits (no more than 8 credits in each of the two summer sessions). If you attempt to enroll in more than 8 credits per session, you will be blocked during online registration.
Highly motivated and academically strong students may be granted permission to enroll in more than 8 credits per session. However, advanced approval is required by both the student's primary major advisor and the Office of Academic and Pre-Professional Advising to enroll in excess credits.
When requesting excess credit approval, please allow at least a week before the start of classes to process your request. The Office of Academic and Pre-Professional Advising will notify you by e-mail regarding whether your request to enroll in excess credits is approved.
To request permission to enroll in excess credits during summer session:
- Download and complete an "Enroll for Excess Credit" form.
- Consult with your primary major advisor to verify he/she agrees to approve the additional credits. Obtain your advisor's signature on the form.
- E-mail the completed and signed form to the Office of Academic and Pre-Professional Advising for review at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Questions about the excess credits process should be directed to:
