Student Course load

A full-time student is one who carries at least 12 credit hours per semester. The normal course load for a full-time student is 15-17 credit hours per semester. A student should average 16 semester credit hours per semester in order to complete the baccalaureate degree within the traditional 4-year period. Students registering for more than 17 credit hours in a semester must have a 3.00 cumulative grade-point average, approval of the Dean of the applicable school, and complete a Schedule Overload Approval Form (located on MyLMU/ Academics/Registrar/ Forms).

Students on academic probation may register for 12 to 16 hours during their probationary period with schedules approved in the Office of Academic Support.
