How many college classes should I take per semester?

You usually need to take at least 12 credit hours per semester to qualify as a full-time college student. Twelve credit hours usually translates to four courses worth three credits a piece. Some students take more than 12 credit hours a semester. The number of classes you take per semester depends on the course plan you've mapped out to earn your degree and any elective classes you decide to attend.
