The normal load for all students is 12 to 17 hours each semester; however, if you are registered for as few as 12 hours, you will be considered a full-time student. All work for which you are registered counts as a part of your course load.
A change in your registration can only be made by filing an official drop and add in the office of the registrar. If you wish to drop a class, it is important that the drop and add form be filed with the registrar as soon as this decision is made. Failure to officially drop a class you are not attending will result in a grade of F for the course. Failure to officially add a class you are attending will result in no credit.
Responsibility for drop and add belong solely to the student. A verbal indication of intent to drop given to either a faculty member or to the registrar’s office is insufficient; the correct drop and add form must be submitted to the registrar. See the academic calendar for specific dates to add and drop classes.
