overloads

Course overload for the Fall/Winter session is defined as enrolment in more than 2.5 credits (or equivalent) during the Fall term or Winter term.

Students enrolling in credits in addition to the normal full-time load are reminded that they are fully responsible for doing so and are cautioned against possible academic difficulties.

Full-time students with an Academic Status of Good Standing may overload in 0.5 credits in each of the Fall or Winter terms using the myTrent registration system. Students with an Academic Status of Good Standing who wish to overload in more than 0.5 credits in the Fall or Winter terms must petition to the Committee on Undergraduate Petitions (CUP) for permission to overload.

Students who do not have an Academic Status of Good Standing must petition to the Committee on Undergraduate Petitions (CUP) for permission to overload.

Course overload for the Summer session: Full-time and part-time eligible students may register in up to 2.0 credits overall in the Summer session. A full load in a six-week term is 1.0 credit. Students with an Academic Status of Good Standing may enrol in up to 1.5 credits in one six-week term. Students wishing to take more than 1.5 credits in one six-week term must submit a petition to the Committee on Undergraduate Petitions.

Notes:

  • The maximums do not apply where a program’s planned curriculum requires that students take an additional load.
  • Upon registration, students are responsible for making themselves aware of the academic and financial obligations and deadlines associated with each course.
