Who can take a fifth course?
Sophomores and juniors may register for a fifth course during the fall or spring semester only with specific approval of their advisers and the dean of their commons during the drop/add period using the special orange add card. Normally, this permission is granted to students who have maintained an average of B or better in the two preceding semesters. Normally, first-year and other new students are not allowed to register for more than four courses. Seniors may register for five courses during the add period without their dean's or adviser's approval, using the orange fifth course add card. The comprehensive fee remains unchanged for a three-, four-, and five-course program. Students may not take more than five courses per semester.
