Limitations of Student Load

Students are not permitted to take any additional course work from Trevecca or other colleges while enrolled in the program, except by permission of the academic advisor. Students may request permission to take additional course work when the adult studies program course work is completed by completing the transient course work form prior to registration.

Students may take additional adult studies courses during the program with the approval of their academic advisor. It is the students’ responsibility to acquire approval from their academic advisor before taking any course or completing any additional hours that may be applied toward the Trevecca Nazarene University degree. The University reserves the right to reject any course for a degree that has not been approved by the student's academic advisor.

The normal course load is 12-15 credit hours per semester, taken one course at a time. After successful completion of the first semester, the Assistant Director of Student Success may approve the following:

  • Overlapping of courses provided the student's cumulative GPA is 2.70 or higher.
  • A course load of 17-18 hours provided the student's cumulative GPA is 2.70 or higher.
  • A course load of 19-21 hours provided the student's cumulative GPA is 3.00 or higher.
