Desired Credit Load and Advance Registration

During Advance Registration, the scheduler attempts to enroll students in courses whose credit value totals the number of credits indicated in the desired load.

The Divisions at Penn have established maximum credit load limits and normal desired credit load limits for their students. These limits are automatically assigned to students by the system.

Students may change their desired credit load to as few or as many credits as they like, provided that it does not exceed the maximum credit load established by their divisions.

Use Screen 111, Student Academic Term Detail, to change the desired credit load. See "ACADEMIC PROGRAMS" for more information about Screen 111.
