Request for Credit Overload
To be considered for a credit overload, you should satisfy the following specific criteria:
- Have a cumulative grade-point average (GPA) of 3.00 or higher at Hunter College
- Have demonstrated the ability to complete 15 credit or more successfully in prior semesters at Hunter College with a GPA of 3.00 or higher and without receiving grades of F, W, WU, CR or NC
- Have no pending grades of Incomplete (IN) or Z
In addition, your selection of courses will be considered. For example, semester programs consisting of more than two lab science courses or multiple intensive writing (W) courses may not be approved.
The desire to graduate earlier than planned is not a valid reason and is not a substitute for satisfaction of the above criteria.
