Academic Load

The academic load of a student is measured by credit hours assigned to each course. The typical engineering program varies from 13 to 19 credit hours per term.

A Credit Overload Request form for permission to exceed 20 credit hours must be submitted for approval prior to registration to the Engineering Academic Advising Center. The form is available on the Marquette Central academic forms website.

AFROTC, AROTC and NROTC students may be required by their program to carry in excess of 19 hours and may do so if their academic performance is satisfactory.

Students in summer sessions must petition for credit loads in excess of eight hours in each session or 16 hours for the entire summer term.
