A minimum 12-hour program is required for full-time enrollment. Normally, a student registers for 15 or 16 credit hours of study each semester; however, a student may register for 17 credit hours if he has demonstrated, either in high school or college, an above-average academic record. Those achieving a grade average of at least “B+” may, on approval of the registrar, be permitted to carry 18 credit hours. The 18th credit hour requires an additional tuition payment unless it represents one of the following:
Neither the additional fee nor the special permission for the 18th hour is required for those designated activities in music or theatre production.
