L&S Semester Credit Load Limits

The following sections provide information for L&S undergraduate students who wish to take more than 18 credits during the Fall or Spring semester.

Can I take more than 18 credits during the Fall or Spring semester?

An L&S undergraduate student is eligible to take more than 18 credits during the Fall or Spring semester with the approval of an academic dean by filling out the Credit Overload Request Form.  A student will automatically be approved to take 19 or 20 credits if s/he has a cumulative GPA of 3.000 or higher at UW-Madison.   More information about credit loads for the academic year and the summer sessions can be found at credit load.
