Commit

By making the commitment to register for 15 credit hours each semester and performing well in your classes you will make yourself eligible for one free 3 credit hour class the following semester.

Excel

In fall 2014 register for 15 credit hours - one of the courses must by FYE 105. Complete the 15 credit hours with a GPA of 2.8 or higher, register for 15 credit hours for spring 2015 and you will receive a waiver for 3 credit hours.

Complete the 15 credit hours for spring 2015 with a GPA of 3.0 or higher, register for 15 credit hours for fall 2015 and you will receive a waiver for an additional 3 credit hours (a total of 6 free credit hours!).
