Normal Course Loads
The curriculum is limited to full credit and half-credit courses. The usual student course load is four, four and one-half, or five course credits a semester. (Freshmen are advised to take no more than four and one-half course credits a semester.) Students who wish to take six or more course credits in a semester must petition the Curriculum Appeals Committee for approval. Full time student status requires a minimum of three course credits. Courses taken for credit/no credit and physical education courses do not count in determining full time status. Freshmen wishing to drop to three course credits need the approval of both their advisors and the Dean of Students.
Note: If a student’s academic program drops below the minimum full-time load of three course credits, he is classified as a
part-time student, is subject to loss of financial aid (e.g. Wabash, State and Federal assistance), and is no longer eligible to
participate in the Student Health Center Reimbursement Plan.
