Full-time Student Status
All full-time students (12 or more credit hours) are permitted to enroll for a maximum of eighteen (18) credit hours per semester, unless they are on Academic Warning or Probation. The tuition charge for these courses is covered by the full-time rate. In an exceptional circumstance, a student may receive a recommendation from his or her advisor and the approval of the Academic Dean or designee to take more than eighteen (18) credit hours (course overload). In such a case, the student must have a minimum CGPA of 3.00 and will be charged an additional tuition fee at the part-time student rate. In instances where the overload is due to one 4 credit course, with a total of 19 credits, the 3.0 requirement will be waived at the request of the Academic Advisor and the consent of the Academic Dean. Overload fees will still apply. Students with a CPGA below 2.0 will not be allowed to take an overload. Course overload forms are available in the Registrar’s office.
Full-time students in traditional undergraduate programs who have completed a minimum of 12 credits at Becker and whose GPA is 3.9 or above will be allowed to take one additional course (up to three credits) at no additional charge. This will apply only to the fall and spring semesters.
Part-time Student Status
Any student enrolled in fewer than twelve (12) credits in a semester is considered to be part-time.
