Credit Overload (Full-time)

(Langone Part-time MBA students: please see Acceleration)

Full-time students are permitted to take up to 3.0 credits of Credit Overload during the MBA program. Students may take all 3.0 credits of credit overload in one semester or may take 1.5 credits of credit overload in two semesters. Credit Overloads are not permitted in the first semester.

Students must understand and agree to the following policies: 

Good Academic Standing

To be considered for a credit overload, students must maintain a minimum 3.0 GPA and be in good academic standing.

Full-time Course Load

Students must follow the requirements for the Full-time program outlined in their first semester. 
In order to maintain Full-time status, students must enroll in a minimum of 9 credits every semester.

Credit Overload per Semester

Students may overload for a total of three (3) credits only:
18 credits in one semester; OR   
16.5 credits in two semesters.

Tuition and Fees

Full-time students pay flat rate tuition and fees for four semesters of study.
Standard tuition refund and scholastic standing policies are in effect regardless of credit load.
If a student withdraws from any course after the 100% tuition refund date during a semester in which they have received a credit overload, they will not be eligible to request a credit overload in a subsequent semester.

Students who wish to enroll in and earn more than 63 credits (after receiving approval for a credit overload) may do so in their last semester of study and may not extend their program to do so. Students will be required to pay for any additional credits beyond 63 credits and must have successfully met all academic program requirements. Students are required to meet with an adviser to discuss enrollment. Please note that financial aid (incluidng loans) is not available for any credits taken in excess of 63 credits. Tuition will be chargeded per point and it is the sole responsibility of the student to pay all associated costs and fees.

Upon graduation, please be aware that we offer Alumni Lifelong Learning benefits which have a wealth of resources for you to enjoy as alumni."

Change of status from the Full-time to Langone Part-time MBA program may result in additional pro-rated tuition charges for all credits taken towards the MBA.


Students are only permitted to lottery for a maximum of 15 credits per semester and the total of 60 overall credits.
Approved Course Overloads will be applied after the lottery during the drop/add period to be fair to all students and provide equal opportunity to students for course selection.

Students are expected to adhere to all drop deadlines as outlined by the Office of Records and Registration.
