Course Load and Credit Hour Limitation

Course Load and Credit Hour Limitation

The course load of a full-time student is 12 or more credit hours and may exceed 18 credit hours of coursework in a regular semester under the following conditions: 

  1. Prescribed curriculum requires more than 18 credit hours per semester exclusive of physical education 
  2. Newly admitted, recent high school graduates whose cumulative average for four years of high school work is of “B” quality (3.0) or higher 
  3. Students with the immediately preceding 30 credit hours of coursework of “B” quality (3.0) or higher, completed at LCCC or another accredited college or university.

These rules also apply to a student taking six or more credit hours during the summer term.

The course load of a part-time student may not exceed 11 credit hours of coursework in a regular semester or five credit hours in an eight-week term or three credit hours in a five-week term.

Exceptions
Due to the unique demands of clinical laboratory courses, practica and co-ops, enrollment status will be determined by the number of contact hours REQUIRED rather than the credit hours to be earned. Twelve (12) contact hours per week in a regular semester will constitute full-time enrollment. Eleven (11) contact hours or fewer will constitute part-time enrollment. These definitions do not apply to financial aid recipients.
