During the Fall and Spring semesters, an enrollment of less than 12 hours or more than 18 hours is outside of banded tuition and charges per semester hour will be assessed.

Any enrollment beyond the limits stated in this section must be approved by the Registrar and requires that the student complete the overload request form.
