Credit Hour Recommendations
A full-time student is someone who is taking at least 12 credit hours in a semester.
- Taking 12 or more credit hours is considered full-time, any less is part-time
- Students taking up to 18 credit hours may web register online
- Taking 19 to 20 credit hours requires an Academic Advisor’s approval
- Taking 21 or more requires the Dean’s approval
- One credit equals one hour in class. For every hour a student is in class, plan for at least 2 hours of study time per week. For example: If a student is in a 3 credit hour class, he/she should plan to spend at least 6 hours per week studying for this class.
