The individual engineering majors are comprised of appropriately sequenced course groupings referred to as “regular semester course loads. Each semester can have a different credit and course load. Students may not take more than 19 credits in a semester without approval. An overload is generally approved for a maximum of one course or four credits provided that:
- a freshman has permission from the office of the Associate Dean of Academic Affairs. Normally, only second semester freshmen with a GPA of at least 3.5 are permitted to overload, or
- an upperclassman has approval from his adviser and chair. Normally a GPA of at least 3.0 is required in this case.
In addition to the requirements above, an overload is generally only approved for the pursuing of a minor or double major, ROTC purposes, and for adjusting schedules to accommodate study abroad if needed.
Note: You must also register for the course after completing and submitting this Permission Form.
