Degree seeking students may enroll in a maximum of 18 credit hours during the Fall and Spring semesters. For Summer and Winter semesters, students may enroll in a maximum of two courses (up to 8 credit hours) per summer session. Non-degree seeking/non-matriculating students may not exceed a total of 11 credit hours at any given point in time. Taking any additional courses beyond 11 credit hours requires admission into a VSU degree program.
