Request an Enrollment Overload

Before registering for classes, students will be required to identify the number of credits they plan to schedule for the upcoming term. Full time enrollment is 12-18 credits. Students wishing to enroll beyond 18 credits need to request an Enrollment Overload. If a student has a GPA of 2.75 or greater, an enrollment overload can be requested through myWCU.
