Loads above these caps will require an Overload Petition.
To enroll in an overload of credits, you must obtain authorization from your academic advisor and other required authorities (specific to each college). To request an overload a student in a UNLV degree program fills out an Overload Petition, obtains all required signatures, and presents the completed petition to the Student Enrollment Services Office. Non-degree students follow the same procedure except that the Director of Summer Term signs as department chair and college dean. Graduate students need approval from the Graduate Dean. If you enroll in an overload situation and if you do not have an overload petition on file, you are in danger of being administratively dropped subject to fee penalties in effect at the time your registration is canceled.
Graduate Credit Limits
Graduate students may take no more than twelve (12) credits for the entire Summer Term.
