Chemistry (No lab) 

Differential Calculus

Communication (Speech) 

CPR/First aid

Group piano 3

Aural skills

    Usually your full time tuition covers 12-18 credits. You could be paying a lot more money for that one extra credit. 

    Is it too much depends on you. My daughter took 18 credits several times and did just fine with it. My son struggled with more than 15 credits

    It's too much for some people, not too much for others.  No one here can tell you what you can handle.  Most schools will require additional permission to sign up for more than 18 hours.

    The University I went to, if you took 19 to 21 credits, you needed to have a really high gpa. That was considered Academic Overload.
