Overload Request for Arts & Sciences Advising Services

The maximum number of hours which may be taken without special permission:

Fall/Spring: 19 hours
Winter/Mini-Term: 3 hours
Summer: 12 hours

Your past academic performance at UT is the most important factor influencing the outcome of your request; therefore, Overload Requests are NOT granted to: first semester students (freshman and transfer), students on academic probation, and students with no remaining W’s

Requests are usually reviewed within 7-10 business days, and you will be notified via email of the outcome. You must make needed adjustments to your course load by the add/drop deadline. Overload requests submitted after the deadline may require an appointment with one of our Directors.
