Student Load

Undergraduate students are classified full-time if they schedule twelve (12) or more semester hours for credit. However, a normal load is sixteen (16) hours per semester. A student may take in excess of sixteen (16) hours but not more than twenty-one (21) hours provided that the student has a cumulative grade point average of at least 3.00 and the written approval of the appropriate college dean.

Six (6) semester hours constitute full-time status for a summer session. A student may take in excess of six (6) hours per summer session, but not more than nine (9) hours provided that the student has the written approval of the appropriate college dean.

Students enrolled concurrently at Grambling State University and another college or University may receive credit for no more than the maximum allowable Grambling State University load for any given semester or summer term.
