Maximum Number of Hours
As indicated in the Holmes catalog, a student cannot register for more than 21 total hours per term. If you request online courses that will put you over a TOTAL (the sum of your day, evening, and online courses) of 21 hours, your entire online registration will be denied. Online courses take more time than traditional courses, not less. In the Summer Session, students can only take a total of 18 hours.
