The University of Connecticut charts a student’s educational progress by semester standing based on earned credits rather than the traditional designations of freshman, sophomore, junior, senior. However, semester standing may be related to these traditional terms as indicated below.

Standing is based on earned credits, not on numbers of semesters attended. Courses in progress are not counted. Standing is advanced after minimum credits indicated below have been earned.
