Course Load

Each school has established the minimum and maximum number of credits for which students are normally expected to register. Registration for fewer credits than the minimum or more credits than the maximum requires special permission from the dean's office. Students who register for fewer than their school's minimum number of credits in a given semester have a notation placed on their academic records indicating that they were enrolled for a reduced course load during that semester. Course load requirements and permission procedures may vary by school, and are detailed in subsequent chapters.
