Summer Credit Load Comparison
This is a credit load comparison chart for those students taking summer courses. This should only be used to help students estimate workload, and is in no way related to what is considered full time for financial aid purposes. The Summer semester is twelve (12) weeks long compared to a typical semester of 15 weeks. The Summer semester also consists of two 8 week Parts of Term, two 6 week Parts of Term and three 4 week Parts of Term. This chart has been provided to aid students in determining how many credit hours they might want to schedule for in the summer term.
* Chart prepared by Jim Maas, College of Business with modifications by the Registrar’s Office.
For a student that is comfortable with a 15 credit load during the fall or winter semester, the following is a recommendation for summer loads.
