Student Status

Students must have completed the registration process at the beginning of the fall and spring semesters and be current in all financial obligations to the University in order to be considered enrolled at the University. Satisfaction of one of the following criteria confers full-time or part-time status on a graduate student during a given semester for the purpose of enrollment certification and deferments of student loans. Separate criteria may apply for tuition, fees, and financial aid.

Full-Time Students   Registration for nine or more credits in a semester constitutes full-time status for the purpose of loan deferments and enrollment certification.

Part-Time Students   Any student carrying fewer than nine credits is considered to be enrolled part-time. For the purpose of loan deferments, students carrying six to eight credits are considered half-time and students carrying five or fewer credits are considered less than half-time.

Part-Time Student, Continuing Education   Under certain conditions, students may enroll in regular daytime classes through Continuing Education as a “citizen scholar.” Application for this status should be made through the Office of Charlottesville Regional Programs. Students are generally limited to two courses up to a total of 8 credits per semester. Apply to the Coordinator, Citizen Scholar Program, Office of Charlottesville Regional Programs, Box 3697, 104 Midmont Lane, Charlottesville, VA 22903, or call (804) 982-5313.
