Those pursuing 12 semester hours or more during any semester (nine hours or more in a summer term) are considered full-time students. To earn an associate degree in four semesters, students should plan to enroll for an average of 16 hours per semester.

There is no limit on the number of credit hours a student may carry in any semester. However, any student wishing to enroll in more than 18 hours in a semester or more than 12 hours in a summer semester will need the department dean’s signature.

Students may not take a course for more or less credit than that assigned in the college catalog or on EagleNet.

Part-time coursework may be undertaken in many programs and students with an interest in attending part-time are advised to contact the appropriate program department for details.
