Updating Variable Course Hours

Some courses are offered for a range of credit hours. (For example, ME 9000 is offered for 1-21 hours.) When a student registers for a course the number of credit hours defaults to 1. It is the students responsibility to adjust the number of credit hours on their schedule. To determine the available credit hour range for a variable hour course please refer to the Schedule of Classes.
