Total Credits 123-129

Because of possible double counting between General Education and the major, the actual credit total can be reduced to 122. 

Most financial aid packages stipulate 12 credits/semester; Minnesota state grants are reduced when credit load falls below 15 credits/semester. (Interim credits may be split between fall and spring for state grant purposes only.)
