Maximum Term Credits

Students may enroll in up to the standard load of 15 credits during each of the fall and spring semesters and 6 credits during Wintersession. During fall and spring, a student wishing to exceed this maximum must first seek approval from her or his program/major advisor. In some departments, approval by the student's department head may also be required, or the approval may be granted directly by the department head. Students should consult their department office coordinator or advisor for more information on how their department implements this rule.

The semester credit limit includes any courses taken simultaneously at another institution, including Brown University

During Wintersession, no exceptions to the 6 credit maximum rule are allowed.
