This form is required to request a third attempt of a given course, to repeat a course in which a grade of "C" or better was earned, or to exceed the 19 or 24-credit limit for a given semester (determined by student's cumulative GPA).
- The typical full-time credit load is 12–19 credits. Students should consult with their academic adviser before registering for a credit overload, which is defined as greater than 19 credits. Students are not permitted to register for more than 19 credits prior to the first day of the semester. To enroll for more than 19 credits in any one semester, a student must have a cumulative grade point average of at least 2.0.
- There are a small number of courses, typically internships or co-ops, that are offered for and earn fewer than 12 credits but are treated as full time equivalent to recognize the workload they represent. Full-time equivalent courses are defined in AAPPM N-5: Enrollment Status. Students taking one of these courses are considered full time, and these courses count as 12 credits of academic load for the purpose of the credit limitation policy.
Students must discuss the request with their academic adviser.
*Those taking a course for the third time are expected to seek support through the Center for Student Achievement. Please send an email to [email protected] to start this process.
Once you complete and submit the request, it will be sent to your adviser for their review and recommendation.
