Summer Session 2013

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.


Enroll for excess credits

Highly motivated and academically strong students may be granted permission to enroll in more than 8 credits per session.

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. 


Request permission

  • 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 arc@umbc.edu

  • 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.
