CUC credit limit proposal insults non-athletes

The CUC has proposed a further limit to semester credit hours. In an email I received, “the motivation for developing a proposal for additional limits to semester credit hours comes from the Dean of Undergraduates reporting a norm among students of enrolling in a larger number of courses than is compatible with overall academic success and personal well-being.” 17 hours will be the limit for new students with the exceptional increase of 18 credit hours for those lucky returning students.
