An extra credit hours fee ($777.00 per credit hour) is charged for each hour in excess of 36 credit hours.  Extra credit hours are determined based on the total number of credit hours a student has registered for in the academic year which includes the fall, January, and spring terms, including the transfer credits earned in Luther off-campus study programs. (Earth and Environment in Italy, Malta and the Mediterranean, Nottingham program, Lutheran College Consortium in Tanzania, Lutheran Colleges China Consortium in Hangzhou, and ACM programs)Credit hours for courses dropped without academic record are excluded from this calculation.  (Check schedule above for specific dates).  Also excluded from the extra hours calculation are credit hours for applied music lessons, class music or piano lessons, vocal coaching, INTS-130, the first HP-100, and the first ES-110 Skills course. 

The extra credit hours calculation does, however, include courses that receive a withdrawal (“W”), incomplete (“I”) or credit/no credit (“CR/NC”) grade, with the exception of senior projects.  Senior projects are included in the extra credit hour calculation only if that course receives an A-F, incomplete (“I”), or credit/no credit (“CR/NC”) grade.
