Study Load

The minimum study load for full-time student status is 12 credits per semester. Unless otherwise specified, a course carries three credits.

The maximum study load during a student’s first semester at LAPU, during any semester when the student’s cumulative GPA is below 3.00, and during any semester when the student’s academic status is not Good Standing (GS) is:

  • 2 courses per session, and
  • 4 courses per semester.

The maximum study load during subsequent semesters when the student‘s cumulative GPA is at least 3.00 and the student’s academic status is Good Standing (GS) is:

  • 3 courses per session, and
  • 6 courses per semester.

Exceptions to the maximum study load policy require a general petition approved by the assistant dean. Students should consult with Student Financial Services regarding federal requirements for financial aid to determine the course load required for federal aid purposes.
