In planning your schedule each semester, you'll want to consider your work schedule, in addition to your courseload.  Your sleep habits and your study habits could affect when you schedule your classes.  You can follow your degree worksheet to graduate on time; or maybe you want to have a lighter semester.  If so, be sure to check with Financial Aid about credit hour minimums.  If you'd like to take more than the recommended course load, remember this: 

Credit Hour Load Policy

An undergraduate student may not enroll for more than 19 semester credit hours during a fall or spring semester or more than 17 semester credit hours during the summer, including Maymester. Exceptions require the approval of the department chairperson/program director/associate dean.  Exceptions will only be considered if additional course work is in the best interests of the student,  the student is in good academic standing, and has a grade point average of 3.0 or higher for the last two semesters. Students are expected to prepare for classes with a minimum of two to three hours of study for each credit hour.

When in doubt, see your advisor.  Your academic advisor can assist you with creating a schedule that works for you!
