13 Credit Policy

Degree-seeking undergraduate students must pay a flat tuition rate based on 13 credits, regardless of credit load. If a student intends to complete less than 13 credits, the student may request exemption from this 13 credit flat tuition rate. For more information on this policy or to submit an online 13-Credit Exemption Request, visit the 13-Credit Policy page on the OneStop Student Services website.

Exemption requests should be submitted by the end of the fourth week of classes for which the exemption is being requested.  They are reviewed on a rolling basis starting one month before the start of semester and processing time ranges from 2-5 weeks depending on the time submitted and the current volume of requests.

If a student does not submit a request before the deadline, the student may still submit an exemption request.  In addition to the request documentation, the student also must submit a statement explaining why the request was not submitted before the deadline.
