looking it up

The College of A&L requires 122 credit hours to graduate, which you wouldn't hit if you were taking 12 hours per semester (even with a summer class each year) in four years. So I think our guys are probably taking 15 on average.

Kelly mentioned this when floating the idea of taking 12 in the fall and making up the difference in the spring/summer.

There’s a “church and state” separation between athletics and academics, but Kelly has reached out to athletic director Jack Swarbrick and president the Rev. John I. Jenkins about potential changes. He says “transformative conversations” are occurring on the academic side. “Are there other ways to do it?” Kelly asks. “Can we cut back on credit hours? Instead of taking 15 [the current practice to start a semester], can we take 12 and make it up in the summer? Are there other course offerings that could come about and be offered in lieu of a specific class? Those are conversations that had never taken place.”
