Advisor Overload Form

Students may now submit the Advisor Overload Approval Form online.  If you are an advisor working with a student, please be sure to let the student login to the computer prior to accessing the form.  Please read the information below regarding course loads.

Course Load
Maximum load for any one semester is as follows:

  • Fall and Spring Semesters - 18 semester hours
  • Winter Term - 4 semester hours
  • Summer I - 8 semester hours
  • Summer II - 4 semester hours

    Any exception to this policy is the responsibility of the Registrar, located in Alamance 102.

    To request an overload a student must meet with his/her academic advisor.  If the advisor agrees that a student may enroll for more than the maximum load, a note is sent to the Registrar's Office.  Upon receiving confirmation, the Registrar will add the overload course work.

    A student whose cumulative GPA is less than 3.0 may not register for overload hours in any term.

Please note: There are additional fees associated with exceeding the maximum course load in a semester.  You may contact the Bursar's Office regarding the additional charges.
