Policy Title


DCP Maximum Credit Hours per Quarter Policy

Policy Statement


Doctor of Chiropractic Program (DCP) students may enroll for a maximum cumulative total of 27.5 credit hours per quarter for all degree plans. Those students seeking to take more than 27.5, must have an institutional cumulative GPA of 3.0 or above, not failed any classes the previous quarter, have no outstanding I or IPs, and must receive approval from the Dean, or their designee.

Procedure(s)
The advisor will note the request for permission to take more than 27.5 credit hours in any given quarter by Friday of Week 10 the prior quarter. The required form must include the total number of credit hours and the courses requested, the rationale as to why the additional credits are needed, and the student’s current cumulative GPA and total credits completed toward degree. The Dean, or their designee, will review the request from the advisor and respond to the student.

Any student who has enrolled in more than 27.5 credit hours without permission of the Dean’s office will be contacted and asked to withdraw from courses sufficient enough to lower the total credit hours being attempted to 27.5 or less. If the student does not respond, the student will be withdrawn from courses sufficient enough to lower the total credit hours being attempted to 27.5 hours or less.
