It is each student's responsibility to ensure that his/her course load each semester meets the full-time or part-time academic load requirements of their school or college. Students must enroll in the number of courses necessary to meet the approved course load by the end of the drop/add period. Placement on a wait list does not count toward meeting course load requirements. DukeHub will not permit you to enroll for more than the credit load limit without obtaining the approval of your dean or school.
- Undergraduates: During registration windows, undergraduates may only register for up to a full course load of 4.0 course credits (an additional half credit in ROTC, music performance, physical education activity, dance technique/performance, or House courses can also be added, bringing the total to 4.5 credits). During the drop/add period, the limit is 5.0 for Pratt and 5.5 for Trinity students, although first semester Trinity students are limited to a maximum of 5.0 credits (four 1.0 credit classes and two .05 credit classes), and must request permission from their dean to be allowed to register for 5 credits.
- Graduate/Professional: Course load requirements vary by school. Contact your advisor for your school's policies regarding course load requirements.
