12 credit hours for fall and spring
6 credit hours for summer
Every class you take is measured as semester credits basically the number of hours you are expected to be in class every week for that class.
Most classes are three semester hours, so taking a 15 hour-course load means you are in school approximately 15 hours a week.
A full-time load for technical students may result in a larger class load of over 20 semester hours involving a schedule of classes from 8 a.m. until 4 p.m. five days per week.
