Course Load

The normal class load at UACCB is defined as 15 credit hours, with 18 credit hours being the maximum load. A student must have at least 12 credit hours to be classified as a full-time student. Some scholarships require more than 12 credit hours to be eligible. A student may petition the Vice Chancellor for Academic Affairs in situations where the student desires to carry more than 18 hours.

For summer terms, students must carry six credit hours during a term to be classified as a full-time student, with seven hours being the maximum load for each summer term. For students receiving Title IV aid, twelve total hours is required for full-time aid throughout the summer term(s).

Students on academic probation, basic skills students, and others identified as academically “at risk” may carry restricted class loads deemed in the best interest of the student by advisors or the Vice Chancellor for Academic Affairs.
