Quantity of Work Rule

A law student may take no more than 16 semester hours a semester. In rare situations, the Assistant Dean for Student Affairs may, for good cause shown, permit a student to register for a maximum of 17 hours. Law students may take courses in other schools and colleges only with the express prior permission of the dean. Normally, a student may not take a course in another school or college, except an ROTC course, in addition to the maximum load in the School of Law.

During a long-session semester, a minimum load of 10 semester hours is required of all students with 20 semester hours of credit or more; a minimum load of 14 semester hours is required of all students with fewer than 20 semester hours of credit. A student may not take less than a minimum load without special permission of the Assistant Dean of Student Affairs.
