Advisors are your partners in your academic journey. You can make an appointment to discuss a variety of topics including class schedules, majors and pre-professional pathways. There are also a wealth of resources available to you to find the answers you need. 

You should register for 16-19 credits. Gibson will not allow you to drop below 12 credits and you will not be able to exceed 19 credits without an override from an academic advisor. The minimum number of credit hours required for a Newcomb-Tulane College degree is 120, with some degree programs requiring more. Most students are able to complete a degree in four years by taking an average of 15 credit hours each semester.
