Course Registration: Credits

There is a fixed number of credits that students may register up to each semester. Please note that this number differs depending on the student curriculum. There are no minimum credit requirements per semester. However, there are minimum requirements when applying for certain scholarships and various programs. As the number of credits registered may impact visa status for international students, it is imperative that students register carefully. For more information, please consult with the Student Office.

Maximum Number of Credits

Students who, due to a leave of absence or withdrawal from the university, are moved from the AY2006 Curriculum to the AY2011 Curriculum will receive the same credit registration limits specified by the AY2006 Curriculum.
