Enrollment tables

Rate of pursuit is calculated by dividing the number of credits being pursued by the number of credits considered to be full-time.
The resulting percentage is the student’s rate of pursuit. That number is then rounded to the nearest 10th percentile. (Effective Aug 1, 2011).
A normal undergraduate load for a fall or spring semester is 12-18 credits.  A normal undergraduate load for a summer session is 6-12 credits.  Students who enroll in more credits than the normal load will pay an extra cost per credit.
