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.
