What is the Institute's overload policy?
Students who pay the comprehensive fee are entitled to take between eleven (11) and sixteen (16) credits in a given semester. Students who wish to take more credits may either: 1) pay for the additional credit at the current full per credit rate, or 2) defer the overload credits to a subsequent semester in which they pay full-time tuition and take fewer than sixteen (16) credits. Students who defer overload charges without an equivalent underload in a subsequent semester will be required to pay the current full per credit rate for any overload credits remaining when they register for their final semester.
