Courses and Academic Information
You will be asked to submit your course selections shortly after submitting all application paperwork. This is a preliminary list and should be as accurate as possible; however, you will be allowed to change your courses when you arrive on campus during the first week of classes. Please use the Registrar's website to make your selections, and base your choices on the previous semester’s offerings until the current listings are posted (usually a few months before the start of each semester). As you look at courses, please pay close attention to the "prerequisites," and make sure that you have taken a similar course at your home institution.
The normal academic load at Bentley is 5 classes (a total of 15 credits). If you wish to enroll in more than 5 classes, you can add an additional class when you arrive on campus, though it is not recommended because of the time commitment involved. Exchange students at Bentley are required to take a minimum of 4 classes per semester.
