Course Overload

Students may schedule up to 18 hours per semester (13 in Summer) without special permission. A student who wishes to accelerate his or her study by taking more than 18 hours (or 13 in Summer) up to a maximum of 24 hours in a semester must meet with their advisor and have a written overload request approved by the department chair or designee of the academic major. A student must have been at Clayton State University for at least two semesters and have achieved an overall B average before an overload will be approved, although the department chair or designee may make exceptions in special circumstances.
