Maximum Number of Credit Hours when Registering

Requests for schedule overloads must be recommended by the student's major school and approved by the Institute Undergraduate Curriculum Committee, by the petition process. Students who are enrolling at other institutions during the Summer term are expected to abide by this rule and petition for exceptions as needed. It is expected that a student's total enrolled hours for Summer would not exceed 16, without permission, regardless of whether the student is enrolled at Tech only or in a combination of hours at Tech and another institution.
