For students registered in a full 15 week semester course that has variable credit (e.g., Co-ops, independent studies, athletic team courses), students will have until the end of the fifth week of the course to increase or decrease credit hours. Students should check with the Career & Experiential Education Center and their academic advisor before making any credit changes to make sure progress towards graduation is not negatively impacted. It is also highly recommended that students check with Financial Aid as any change in credit hours may impact financial aid and student billing. After the fifth week deadline, credit hour changes will not be accepted. In a course that is fewer than 15-weeks, students can increase or decrease the course hours until the end of the first week of courses.
