Academic Regulations, Procedures and Standards
The academic year consists of two semesters, fall and spring, of approximately fifteen weeks each. The University also offers several summer sessions. Students enrolled in twelve to eighteen credit hours per semester are classified as full-time. Students wishing to take more than eighteen credit hours must obtain approval prior to registering from the School’s Dean and the Provost.
A reduced credit load is a maximum of twelve semester credit hours. Reduced loads are assigned to students in educational development programs, on academic probation, or involved in work activities that interfere with the student’s academic progress. Part-time students are those who enroll in fewer than twelve semester credits.
