Two Course Credits in One Block

Students are not permitted to earn credit for more than one full course or two half courses per Block. Exceptions to this rule may be granted by the Academic Standing Committee to seniors who can demonstrate that they will have a minimum of 31 course credits without the credit for which they are petitioning, and will otherwise qualify for graduation at the end of the academic year. The additional course must be one needed to complete the student's major or professional program. No more than two Block credits may be earned in this way, and neither of these credits may be used to make up course deficiencies in order to yield the minimum 31 course credits required for graduation. Students granted permission to earn two course credits in one Block may not take a vacation Block within that academic year. Should they do so, the second Block credit will be disallowed and the course will not be recorded on their transcript.
