1.8 Credit Load


A full-time student may not enroll for more than 16 or fewer than 12 credit hours in any semester without the permission of the Associate Dean of Academic Affairs. A part-time student may not enroll in fewer than 9 credit hours or more than 11 credit hours in any semester without the permission of the Associate Dean of Academic Affairs. No student may enroll in more than 6 credits in a summer session.

Pursuant to ABA rules, no student will be permitted to register for more than 17 credits in any semester.

No student with a pending grade of Incomplete will be permitted to register for more than 16 credits for any subsequent semester.

Applications for waivers of these rules, which are consistent with the ABA rules, New York Court of Appeals rules, and other regulatory requirements, may be made to the Academic Standing Committee. Students are urged to make such applications early; the timing of Academic Standing Committee meetings over the summer and between semesters may make it impossible for the Committee to consider the request before the end of the registration period.
