Q: How many credits can I take during AUGUSTmester?
A: Limit of three.

Q: Are AUGUSTmester credits counted in my total summer credit load?
A: No, AUGUSTmester course count as part of your fall semester load.

Q: What if AUGUSTmester causes a credit overload in my fall schedule?
A: Banner will not accept a registration that creates a credit overload without prior authorization. It is understood that an AUGUSTmester course is offered in a separate time frame from other fall courses, but Banner doesn't see it that way. To get overload permission entered into Banner to take a AUGUSTmester course, students can email uaf-registrar@alaska.edu with their student ID and the requested AUGUSTmester course name and CRN. It is helpful to put "AUGUSTmester Credit Overload" in the subject line. Call 907-474-7500 for additional information.
