If you plan to graduate in four years (8 semesters) you must take at least 15 credits each semester. Taking just the 12 hour minimum to qualify for financial aid will cause you to fall short of the credits needed to graduate. There is a 120 minimum credit hour requirement which must be fulfilled to earn a bachelor’s degree. 15 credits x 8 semesters = 120 credits.

If your major requires more than 120 credits, you will need to take more during the fall or spring semesters or consider summer courses, J-Term, or explore your eligibility to earn credits without taking classes through Credit for Experiential Learning, Course Challenge, or the College Level Examination Program.


You can save money by registering for more than 12 hours, since there are no additional tuition charges for courses above 12 credit hours. Any credits registered greater than 12 for either the fall or spring semesters are “free.” You may take up to 19 hours in one semester if you are degree seeking and have a 2.00 GPA or better.
