How many credits do I need during my sophomore year?

Hi all, I'm currently a high school junior and trying to plan ahead for my college years. I'm wondering how many credits I should aim for during my sophomore year at a typical university. Are there any recommendations or requirements I should know about? Thanks in advance!

Hey there! It's great to see you preparing for college early. The number of credits you'll need as a sophomore varies by university, but typically, students aim to earn about 30 credits each year to stay on track for graduation. This would mean by the end of your sophomore year, you'd have around 60 credits.

Each college or university may have different requirements, so it's important to check the specific guidelines of the universities you're interested in. To get a more precise number, consult the school's academic catalog or speak with an advisor once you're enrolled. Keep in mind that some majors require more credits than others, so plan accordingly. Good luck with your planning!
