Overloading Policy

A normal credit load per term is basically our recommended credit load per term. However, to give you the flexibility of managing your own study plans, you have the option to have credit overloads, provided you meet the following conditions.

For 4-Year Degree Programs:
  1. Registered BBA and BSc students:
    (a) Students are required to follow their suggested pathway in their first term of undergraduate studies.
    (b) All students would be allowed to take up to 18 credits per regular term. For those on academic probation, students will follow the restrictive study pattern.
    (c) Students with CGA of 3.300 or above could apply and enroll up to 20 credits per regular term, subject to school/department approval.
  2. Exchange-out students:
    For those of you who have returned from or will be participating in the exchange program, you can follow the same guidelines as above.

For 3-Year Degree Programs:
  1. Registered BBA and BSc students:
    (a) Students are required to follow their suggested pathway in their first term of undergraduate studies.
    (b) All students would be allowed to take up to 20 credits per regular term. For those on academic probation, students will follow the restrictive study pattern.
    (c) Students with CGA of 3.300 or above would be allowed to enroll up to 22 credits per regular term.
  2. Exchange-out students:
    For those of you who have returned from or will be participating in the exchange program, you can follow the same guidelines as above.
For Incoming Exchange Students:

If you are an incoming exchange student, you can only enroll in up to 17 credits. This is because incoming exchange students normally take up many activities such as travelling during the term, and may find the extra challenge of an overloaded schedule too time-consuming.

Credit overloading policy is reviewed from time to time, students are strongly advised to refer to the School web for the most updated information.
