Number of Credit Hours

The number of classes you take each semester will affect your progress toward earning your degree. On average, you must take 14-16 credit hours per semester to graduate in four years.

Students who aim to meet the following are typically successful in meeting the four-year mark:

  • Earn 30 credit hours by the end of the first year
  • Earn 60 hours at the end of the second year
  • Earn 90 hours by the end of the third year

This will allow you some flexibility for your senior year.
