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 an undergraduate student during a given semester for the purpose of enrollment certification and deferment of student loans. Separate criteria may apply for tuition, fees, and financial aid.

Full-Time Students   Registration for twelve 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 twelve credits (or fewer than nine credits in the College of Arts and Sciences) is considered to be enrolled part-time. Registration for fewer than twelve credits is permitted only under extraordinary circumstances and only with the permission of the dean's office (See the section entitled Course Load). Students wishing to carry fewer than twelve credits may register through Continuing Education with the permission of their dean. Undergraduate students who have obtained such permission are restricted to taking a maximum of two courses each semester (plus any corequisite lab or discussion sections). College students are limited to a maximum of 16 total credits taken in Continuing Education.
