17 Things to keep in mind when making your schedule... Plan Successfully Overloading work/school hours is the #1 reason students do poorly, have to drop their classes and lose their money, or find themselves on academic probation or suspension. Credit Hour Guidelines* Full-Time credit hours 3/4 Time credit hours Half-Time credit hours Student Loan Minimum... 6 credit hours Maximum Load** credit hours *Credit hours, credits, hours and units have the same meaning. **Permission to enroll in an academic overload is granted by the vice president of instruction. See an advisor for additional information. Course Load Guidelines Study at least two hours for every one hour spent in the classroom. For example, if you are enrolled in 12 credit hours of classes, you would need to schedule 2 hours per credit hour to study, or 24 additional hours to study each week. This equals 36 hours per week scheduled for school commitments! If you are working and going to school, please note the following guidelines for the maximum number of work hours according to course load: SCHOOL...WORK 6 credit hours hours 9 credit hours hours 12 credit hours hours credit hours hours or less Three-peat Rule If you attempt a course more than twice, a higher tuition rate is charged for most credit courses, starting on your third attempt. Excessive Credit Hours Acquiring more than 30 credits in excess of your bachelor s degree requirement may result in a higher tuition rate being charged by your university. Six-Drop Rule You will be limited to 6 dropped courses while attending Texas public colleges or universities. Your drop record will follow you when transferring. If you still choose to drop a class, be specific in stating your reason for withdrawing. Withdrawing from classes Before withdrawing from classes Talk to your instructor. Ask for recommendations on how to improve your grade. Talk to your advisor. Why do you feel you need to drop the class? Seek out the tutoring services at any campus Learning Center. Check with the financial aid department to determine if withdrawal will adversely affect your financial aid. Check the tuition refund chart in the class schedule. Realize that you may not receive any refund. Make your final decision before the last day to withdraw (look for the date on the academic calendar on page 52). Students must see an advisor to drop. Students cannot drop a class online once it has started. If you still want to withdraw from a class, ask yourself how it would affect: Your ability to graduate on time Your status for health or automobile insurance Your continued eligibility for financial aid Your ability to register for the class the following semester Your transfer to a university Your tuition if the next time you register for this course will be your third attempt (withdrawing counts as an attempt). See Three-peat Rule. See page 38 for more info. LoneStar.edu 17
