Summer Registration Opens March 6!

A complete list of Summer and Winterm courses is available in Access Stout.

Credit Limits


  • Undergraduate: Up to 12 credits
  • Graduate: Up to 10 credits 


  • Undergraduate & Graduate Students:  Up to 4 credits 

Requests for an exception in special circumstances must be approved by the appropriate program director. Due to the compressed schedule of instruction, it is recommended that at most one credit per week be taken during the summer session(s) for which the student is enrolled. Students may not register for classes that conflict with another class on their schedule. The program director's signature (if approved) must accompany the registration. 

Students who register for more than the above limits with written approval and find they cannot carry the added courses will be responsible for all course fees incurred unless the course is dropped within the refund period.
