Course Plans

Fast Forward participants will take full loads of 15 or 16 semester hours each fall and spring. A normal full time load is between 12 and 16, so students won’t be buried with classes. During the summer, students take general education courses, allowing them to take courses in their major during the traditional academic year. Students who transfer in some college credits will be able to take a lighter load in some semesters or the summer time.

Your course load might be similar to this chart:

Credit hours per semester

  Fall January Spring Summer
Year 1 16 3 16 12
Year 2 16 3 16 12
Year 3 16 3 15
