This is a great question. Academic overload is the the name for a student taking 20 or more credits in one quarter. There is no prerequisite number of credits you need to have taken at Rasmussen in order to go on academic overload.

However, you do need to get an exception approval from the regional dean in order to be eligible for 20+ credits. Make an appointment and talk with your  advisor about your current credit load and the possibility of increasing it. They will work with you to get the paperwork for an exception filled out and then send it up the chain for approval. Once approved, your advisor will help you arrange your My Degree Plan to accommodate the increased workload.
