Course Load

A full-time student carries between 12 and 18 credits. For enrollment verification purposes, 12 credits are considered full-time for students. Students electing to carry more than 18 credits in a semester must speak to their assigned advisor. Approval will depend on the student's scholastic record. Students considering enrolling in any classes at another college or university with concurrent registration at Blackhawk should consult with his/her advisor.

Course loads are defined as:

  • Full-time is 12 or more credits
  • Three-quarters time is 7 - 11 credits
  • Half-time is 6 credits
  • Less than half time is 5 credits or less
