Without special permission, a student may enroll for no more than 17 total credit hours or more than four 3000 level and/or 4000 level courses per quarter.

A student may enroll in more than 17 and less than 21 total credit hours with explicit permission of the Vice Provost for Academic Affairs and for more than 21 hours only with explicit permission of the Provost.

If an established degree program's course matrix includes a quarter with more than 17 hours, the students in the program need not apply for a course enrollment limitation waiver. This limit is automatically waived in these cases.
