How many classes should I take?

I would say the average is about 5, so probably 5-5.5 credits. The normal range though is 4-6 classes, maybe 7-8 if you're really crazy or have tons of requirements for multiple majors. Some people come in with a lot of AP credit so they can afford to take less classes per semester!

It would be a good idea to think about the difficulty of classes you're taking and try to balance them; I take maybe 2-3 harder classes with some easier electives. I know some people take 4 credits if they're transitioning into school or have a lot of extracurriculars on their plate one semester, so it's no biggie as long as you can graduate in time!
