How do I get a Credit Hour Overload ?
During the Fall & Spring terms, you may register for a maximum of 18 credit hours. Any amount over this is called an "overload" and must be approved as described below. For summer, a course load of more than 12 credit hours is considered an overload throughout entire summer, and course load of more than 6 credit hours in shorter summer sessions is considered overload.
To get credit hour overload you must be one of the following:
- Undergraduate who has officially declared a major in the College of Arts and Sciences
- Undergraduate who has not yet declared a major
- Undergraduate and Graduate students-at-large
Approval for a course overload is granted under the following conditions:
- Have a cumulative GPA of 3.0
- Fill out Overload Request form available in Dean’s Office (BBH 158)
You may not carry a course overload during the first semester of study at Northeastern.
Note: If not a major in the College of Arts and Sciences, see the other colleges to request a credit overload.
