Credit Hour Overload Policy

Students may attempt 19-21 hours in the fall or spring semester with prior permission from their advisor.  Any hours beyond 21 credit hours per fall or spring semester or 9 credit hours in the summer term require written permission from the Vice President of Academic Affairs or Major Department Chair. 

This policy includes courses taken at Hutchinson Community College alone or in combination with other institutions. 

If prior permission is not obtained, an appeal should be submitted to the Vice President of Academic Affairs.
