A student may register for a single course or for a full-time college program. A student who registers for 12 or more credit hours a semester (6 or more in a summer session) is regarded as a fulltime student. A student working full time should generally not register for more than 6 credit hours during a regular semester or 3 in the summer session. A teacher who is employed full time is prohibited by the Indiana State Department of Education from earning more than 6 credit hours in one semester.
A student who expects to graduate in four academic years, not counting summer sessions, should carry at least 15 credit hours during each semester of the regular academic year. Except with special permission from the dean, a student is not permitted to enroll in more than 17 credit hours. A minimum grade point average of 3.0 (B) is required if a student wishes to carry more than 17 credit hours.
