First-Year Course Load

Most students take 12-16 credit hours during their first semester. A typical schedule includes three "solids" (4 credit courses) and a 1 credit class (e.g. PE, Career & Educational Planning, or Study Skills). Some science classes have a lab component which will require additional time outside of class.
