Over-Hours Credit Disclaimers

1. The Life Sciences Student Advisement Office can only approve up to 21 hours of credit. Any requests that exceed 21 hours will need to be petitioned through the BYU Registrar Office - registrar.byu.edu/petitions.
2. Students will not be allowed to register for over-hours credits until the first day of the semester or term. They can register for the first 18 hours beginning at their typical registration date.
