Variable Credit Course Credit Changes

Some classes are set up as variable credits, which means students can choose how many credits they would like to take within a set range. Banner will always default to the lowest available credits for a course.

You can change the number of credits for a variable credit course only after initially registering for the default credit amount.

To change the number of credits for such a course after initially registering:

  • Go to Banner
  • Select the Student Menu.
  • Then select the Registration and Class Planning Menu.
  • Then select Class Registration and Planning
  • Then select Register for Classes.
  • Select the academic quarter for which you are registering and click Continue.
  • Choose the Schedule and Options tab at the top of the page.
  • This will bring up your registered courses. Under the “Credit Hours” column, courses with variable credit will have the credit number underlined when you hover over the credits.
  • Click on the credits to enter the desired number of new credits and press enter.
  • Click Submit to save your changes at the bottom right of the page.
  • Return to your course summary to verify that your credit change saved to your registration.
