Course overloads

Olin students may register for a maximum of 20 credits each semester. The maximum load of 20 credits is a total of degree and non-degree activities. In exceptional circumstances, students may petition the Committee on Student Academic Performance (COSAP) with the consent of their advisor for approval of a course overload. Additionally, COSAP may reduce the maximum credits allowed. This reflects Olin’s commitment to reasonable expectations and academic success. First-year, first-semester students are limited to taking a maximum of 18 credits.
