Credit Load per Semester
Unless explicitly authorized by the Associate Dean for Academic Affairs, (a) no full-time student will be permitted to register for more than 16 credit hours per semester (8 credit hours in the summer term), and (b) no part-time student will be permitted to register for more than 12 credit hours per semester (6 credit hours in the summer term).
With permission of the Associate Dean of Academic Affairs, a full-time student may register for a maximum of 18 credit hours and a part-time student may register for a maximum of 13 credit hours. As used in this section, “credit hours” includes all classes the student takes at the University of Louisville, regardless of whether the credit will be applied toward the student’s degree.
Skills competitions and journal credit also count as hours in this calculation.
