How to determine your course load

 

Usually, you can find out the number of courses or credits that make up a full course load by checking your school calendar. Once you know how many courses or credits make up a full course load, you can figure out how many courses or credits would equal 60 per cent. For example:

  • If 5 courses are considered a full course load, then 3 courses are 60 per cent
    (3/5 x 100 = 60).
  • If 30 credits are considered a full course load, then 18 credits are 60 per cent
    (18/30 x100 = 60).

In some cases, factors other than courses or credits are used to determine your course load. Contact the financial aid office of the institution you are planning to attend for information if you are unable to figure out your course load.
