Part-time evening division students in the first year typically take 11 credit hours in the fall semester and 11 credit hours in the spring semester. Part-time evening students who opt to enroll in the summer Criminal Law course will take three credit hours during the summer 2023 term, 8 credit hours during the fall 2023 semester, and 11 credit hours during the spring 2023 semester.

Part-time day division students in the first year typically take 11 credit hours in the fall semester and 12 credit hours in the spring semester.
