Request a Course Overload

Undergraduates may not take more than 18 semester hours except with the approval of the Psychology Department Undergraduate Program Director or the Director of Advising. To request special permission to take more than 18 semester hours during a regular semester, or more than 7 semester hours in any one given summer session, you must fill out a Credit Limit Increase Form. A Credit Limit Request Form is also necessary if enrollment in winter session courses results in the spring semester plus winter term course load exceeding 18 hours. Questions about the form may be sent to the Undergraduate Program Director (psy_upd@uncg.edu).

Keep in mind that requests are granted at the discretion of the Psychology Department Undergraduate Program Director or Director of Advising.

Dependent on your circumstances, approval of your request may require one or both of the following:

  • A minimum 3.00 cumulative GPA
  • Anticipated graduation date within 1-2 semesters

Please note that course overload requests are only approved for students in academic good standing, regardless of a student’s anticipated graduation date
