Student Maximum Course Enrollment Guidelines

  • The minimum load for full-time student status is 12 credits; however, Barton encourages students to enroll in at least 15-16 hours per semester to meet graduation requirements within two years. Degrees have varying credit hour requirements; thus, students should work closely with their advisor to identify their degree’s requirements. Full-time status for financial assistance is 12 hours per semester. A student may receive partial financial assistance for part-time status.
  • Recognizing the importance of a student’s success includes academic performance, integrity practices and a robust college experience, the maximum student course enrollment is as follows:

Fall/Spring Semesters
21 credits – maximum course load; requires no permission

Summer Semester
15 credits – maximum course load; requires no permission


  • Students enrolled in Barton’s Fort Leavenworth and Fort Riley LSEC program are limited to three classes per cycle.  There are three cycles per fall and springs terms; therefore, nine classes are allowable during the fall and an additional nine classes are available during the spring.  There is only one cycle during the summer term.
  • Students enrolled in accelerated programs, such as some of the workforce programs.
