Academic Policy Details
Course Load and Overload
The unit of college credit for all courses completed at William Woods University is the semester hour. The normal course load for full-time students in fall and spring semesters is 15 credits per semester, with full-time status in the range of 12-18 credits. The full-time status range for the summer semester is 6-12 credit hours.
Students on academic probation may be required to limit their schedule of classes by the Academic Dean and Associate Dean.
Class loads in excess of the maximum established for each semester are reserved for students with at least a 3.00 grade point average. A course load exceeding 18 credit hours per semester (12 hours per summer semester) is considered an overload; which must be approved by the Academic Dean prior to registration. Students will be billed a per credit tuition charge for overload credits in the fall and spring semesters.
These policies apply to the Semester Program/On Campus students only. Graduate College Students will need to consult the Graduate College Regulations.
