Questioner: Laura Jackson
Posed to: Earle Traynham, Provost & Vice President, Academic Affairs
The Interpreting program requires that students only take 12 hours per semester. How will the 15 credit hour rule affect students in this program?
Provost Earle Traynham provided a response from the floor:
Those programs that allow students to take no more than 12 credit hours per semester would be exempt from the 15 credit hour rule to maintain scholarships. The 15 credit hour rule actually states that students must complete 30 credit hours per year; therefore, if a student does not complete 15 credit hours within one semester, the additional hours could be taken in another semester or during the summer term to satisfy the 30 credit hours per year requirement.
