How many credits should I take each semester?
That depends a lot on your lifestyle, working hours, and major. We consider 12 credit hours or more as a full-time student, but you will need to take more if you plan on finishing your degree in two years. On the other hand, many of our students take a class or two each semester and just take a little longer to finish their program at HCC. If you’re a new student, your advisor will help you develop an appropriate schedule.
