A student is considered to be full-time if enrolled in 12-18 credits. A student seeking to register for 19 + credits must receive written authorization from the Dean of Student Affairs and Dean of Academic Affairs. A student will be allowed to exceed the 18 credit limit under special circumstances, and if the Dean of Student Affairs, Dean of Academic Affairs, and the Registrar/Admissions Officers are all in agreement. The student will be assessed the appropriate tuition and fees; the 19th credit will cost extra (19 X 70.00 + fees = $1665.00). Each credit after that will be assessed the $70.00 per credit. NOTE: A Pell grant, waivers, and scholarships only apply to 12-18 credit load; the student is responsible for all tuition and fees that exceed this credit load.
