Petition for Overload of Credit

When to Use This Form
Fall/Spring: if you wish to take more than 19 credits. Summer: if you wish to take more than 16 credits total for the term, may not exceed 8 per session. Winter: if you wish to take more than 4 credits.
Instructions
Please fill out this complete form and make sure to include the Personal Statement. This should explain why the overload is both desirable and possible. The Dean will consider you GPA, the number of credits you have successfully completed in the past, the specific courses you wish to take, and how close you are to graduation. Additionally, if you are requesting more than 22 credits in fall/spring, or any kind of winter/summer credit overload, call or stop by the office to schedule an appointment to discuss you request.
Qualifications
Cumulative GPA of at least 2.75; no unresolved INCs; no Academic Sanctions (Academic Warning, Probation, Reinstatement from Suspension or Dismissal); additional course(s) must be appropriate.
Personal Information
This petition will not affect the 19-credit limit for confirmed registration prior to the start of the fall/spring semester. Even if your request is approved, the request can’t be activated in SPIRE system until closer to the beginning of the fall/spring semester; thus, you will not be able to add the overload course(s) before then. Many petitions are held until after the current semester’s grades are final. As such, you are advised to add the courses that may be most important to your academic plan now in case they are full by the time a decision is made.
Academic Information
Please enter the semester for which the overload is being requested:
