The traditional full-time tuition rate will be charged for this range. An overload rate per hour will be charged for credit hours above 16. Sixteen credit hours are a maximum load. Additional credits may be taken only by permission from the Vice President of Academics. An additional four credits can be earned during Interterm in January.
