After successfully completing 16 credits per semester during the first year, students who average 16 credits per semester over the next three years will need an additional 6 credits to graduate. The University of Rochester offers several options that allow a student to complete these additional 6 credits, such as taking an extra course during a later semester or taking a course during a summer term.
