You are not able to enroll in a course that puts you over the 18-credit limit.
You do not receive a waiver; someone must manually enroll you in the course.
To make your request to be enrolled in a course, download the
Over the 18-Credit Limit form.
Fill in all sections of the form and enroll in all courses except the one that would place you over the limit. FSEHD would prefer you enroll in all courses except for one of the FSEHD program courses.
Discuss your plans with your advisor to ensure you taking the appropriate courses.
Once you’ve discussed this with your advisor, email your request to
FSEHD@ric.edu, include the completed Over the Credit Limit form and a current transcript. All information must be provided in order to review your request.
The Associate Dean will review previous semester work, GPA and credit load. If approved, the Associate Dean will enroll you in the course that puts you over the limit.
Note: Students who take more than 18 credit hours of course work per semester pay an additional $347 per credit hour (if in state) or an additional $856 per credit hour (if out of state and Northeast Neighbors). Waivers are not eligible for credit overload.
