Undergraduate Course Overload Form

Since the maximum load without special approval for other undergraduate students is 19 semester hours, it is not possible to schedule for more than 19 hours via myGate. If an exception is to be made the following criteria must be met:


  1. The undergraduate student must be at least sophomore standing.
  2. The undergraduate student must have an overall GPA of at least 3.00 or have earned at least 12 hours with a 3.0 for the previous semester. 
  3. The undergraduate course overload form must be signed by the student's advisor, college dean and chair.
  4. The signed form must be submitted to the Registration Office in Sparks Hall prior to registration add deadlines. 
Under no circumstances may an undergraduate student enroll in more than 22 semester hours without approval and a letter of justification from the student's dean along with the Provost and Vice President for Academic Affairs.
