ESL - 6 credits per session
Undergraduate - 12 credits
Graduate - 9 credits
In addition to a minimum credit load, F-1 visa holders are also limited in the amount of online credits that can be taken each semester. During spring and summer semesters, students may only have 3 online credits (Typically one class) that can be used for their 12 credit minimum; once above 12 credits, students may take more than 3 online credits.

Information on adding/dropping classes can be found on the Registrar’s website: Adding/Dropping Classes
