Students must carry at least 12 credit hours each semester (12-week + 3-week) to maintain fulltime status.  However, in order to graduate in four years, it is highly recommended that students earn an average of 15 credits per semester.  Tuition is charged for 12-18 hours per semester. “W” courses count in this overall semester hour determination.  Extra hour charges will be billed for hours less than 12 or more than 18.  Students who wish to enroll in 21 hours or more must seek approval from the College Dean.

New students enrolled in a Freshman Colloquium, Freshman Seminar, Writing Seminar, WRIT 10400, WRIT 10500 or WRIT 10510 cannot drop their course via Web4Students. Please contact your advisor for any schedule adjustments

All traditional students are required to engage in one 3-4 credit hour course or an approved equivalent course block during the 3-week session in each semester they are enrolled at Hiram.  Students must receive written permission by the Associate Dean of the College (written on an add slip provided by the Registrar’s Office) to register for more than four semester hours during the 3-week.

Students must be registered for courses in order to attend courses.  Students not registered by SEPTEMBER 6th for a 12-week course or by DECEMBER 3rd for a 3-week course, and found to be attending courses will be instructed to leave the classroom by the instructor. Failure to leave will result in removal from the classroom and legal or judicial action for disruption.
