Change variable credit hours

Some courses have variable credit, meaning that they can be worth 1 to 3 credit hours at the discretion of the student enrolling. Variable credit course numbers typically end in a zero (ex. MUTE 1130).

Once you enroll in a course that has variable credit hours, the system will automatically enter you in the minimum number of hours for that course. To receive the desired amount of credit, you must manually change the number.

While on the Register for Classes page, click on My Schedule and Options to change the number of hours.
