Students at Rice normally enroll for 15 to 17 semester credit hours each semester. For most students, this allows completion of graduation requirements in 8 semesters. In some instances, a student may feel the need to petition for a registration overload. Petitioning for a registration overload should be a last resort and only for students with truly extenuating circumstances that would necessiate a course overload.
