This course may be taken prior to or during the same term.
Students are required to pay an excess hour surcharge for each credit hour in excess of 120% (students who began enrollment Fall 2009-Summer 2011), 115% (students who began enrollment Fall 2011-Summer 2012), or 110% (students who began enrollment Fall 2012 and later) of the number of credit hours required to complete the baccalaureate degree program in which the student had declared at matriculation. Students whose initial enrollment at any institution of higher education beginning Fall 2009 and later may be assessed excess hours fees if they exceed the number of hours required for the degree program. Students whose initial enrollment as a degree seeking undegraduate in any institution of higher education was prior to Fall 2009 are exempt from excess hours.
Students who are eligible for the Excess Hours Surcharge and break continuous enrollment after fall 2012 by not enrolling for two consecutive semesters and not registering for the third consecutive semester before the first day of that term will, upon their return to the University, be subject to the 110% credit hour threshold and 100% surcharge.
