Course Load Policy

In order to complete a degree in the standard time frame (two years for the associate degree and four years for the bachelor's degree), the student course load would be about 16 credit hours for three quarters per year. The per quarter course load includes regular, accelerated, online, and independent study courses, as well as externships and internships. A minimum of 12 credits per quarter is required to be considered as a full-time student. Registration for course loads exceeding 18 quarter credits requires a minimum cumulative grade point average and signature as follows:
