Credit Increases

Students should complete the “Request for a Credit Increase” form if trying to register for five courses of three or more credits (and additional 1 to 2 credit courses) and need more than 17 credits, if an Arts student, or 19 credits, if a Sciences student. The form should be completed prior to the assigned registration time and submitted it to the Office for Undergraduate Students. 

Note: If a student’s cumulative GPA is at least 3.0 and she/he/they would like to take a sixth course with credits totaling to 19 credits, the credit limit is raised after the final registration period for students with a cumulative GPA of 3.0 or higher for arts students. Students that fall under this category do not need to fill out a form.
