Important Academic Information
Maximum Student Load
The following rules concerning the semester hour load apply to all regular students: 1) Any student who has a cumulative grade point average of less than 3.0 is limited to nineteen (19) semester hours of academic work, including credit and non-credit courses. 2) Students on academic probation will have their class load limited to thirteen (13) academic hours. 3) Students who are required to enroll in two or more developmental courses may not enroll for more than 14 academic hours including credit and non-credit courses. However, non-credit courses will be included in total semester load hours. A summer session normal load is six hours.
A student wishing to enroll in more than 19 hours in a semester must complete a “Permission for Overload of Semester Hours” form. This form can be found on the NGU website and in the Registrar’s Office. Once all signatures are obtained on the form, the form must be submitted to the office of the Provost and Dean of the University Faculty for final approval. This approval should be done before exceeding the hour loads designated above. Students in the Honors Program may exceed the maximum load limit with approval of the Director of the Honors Program or the Provost and Dean of the University Faculty.
Normally, in lecture-discussion courses requiring outside preparation, one hour of credit shall be given for one period of recitation (50 minutes) plus two hours of preparation each week of the term. Also, a semester hour of credit normally represents at least three hours of work each week, on the average, for a period of 15-16 weeks.
If a class is being taught and there is no class conflict, an independent study should not be given. Ordinarily, no student can earn more than six semester hours through independent studies toward their degree. Exceptions must be approved by the Provost and Dean of the University Faculty. A professor ordinarily is allowed to teach two independent studies per semester. (Exception will be given in one-hour physical education classes.) The dean must first give approval for the independent study in the college. Also, the course instructor and the Provost and Dean of the University Faculty must approve the independent study.
