Approval for Class Overloads and Closed Classes

Approval for Class Overloads

In a minimal number of special cases, the Academic Dean will permit students to exceed the academic maximum load for the term. A request to exceed the maximum class load may not be made by students enrolled in developmental studies courses. Permission of the Academic Dean is required for any student who wants to enroll in more than 18 semester hours of credit fall or spring semester or for more than 15 hours summer. The appropriate form indicating the Dean's permission must be submitted to Admissions and Records Office personnel.

Approval to Enroll in Closed Classes

When the maximum number of students allowable in a particular class section has been reached and a student has special circumstances that warrant consideration for approval to enroll in the class section, permission of the academic department head is required.

Usually, permission is not granted when special labs, equipment, classroom size, etc., are determining factors. The appropriate form indicating the Department Head's permission must be submitted to Admissions and Records Office personnel.
