Credit Overload Request

Credit Overload Request: Students may register for up to 16 credits in fall or spring. If a student is seeking to register for 17 or 18 credits, they should fill out the Credit Overload Request form. The form is routed to the student’s major advisor and department head for approval.

It is recommended that students have a 3.0 cumulative GPA in order to be considered (and not in their first semester of their major). First-year students do not have access to the form.

If approved, this request would allow registration up to 18 credits. Note, all requests must be received prior to the semester end.

**This form is NOT available for Wintersession**
