Academic Load

Academic Load - Undergraduate

A student carrying a minimum of 12 hours in a long semester (fall or spring) shall be considered a full-time student. A course load of 19 or more hours, all at St. Edward’s or taken concurrently at St. Edward’s and another institution, requires the approval of the appropriate school dean. In summer terms the following limits apply: Summer I, six hours; Summer II, six hours; Summer 12-Week, 12 hours. A student should be registered for no more than 12 concurrent hours at any time during the summer and a total of no more than 15 hours for the entire summer. A course load that exceeds any of these limits requires approval of the dean of the student’s school.  With very few exceptions, international students with F-1 and J-1 status must be enrolled in a full course load to maintain their status. Please contact the International Student Services Office with questions regarding international student course loads.
