Full-time students are those who register for at least 12 credits and continue to carry at least 12 credits through the end of the semester.

Courses with restricted credits (see Credit Restrictions) have all credits counted in computing the Semester Credit Load, but only unrestricted credits count toward the degree. Unresolved marks from a previous semester and/or courses currently being audited are not counted in computing the Semester Credit Load.

Part-time students are those enrolled for fewer than 12 credits. Enrolling for fewer than 12 credits requires the written approval of the student?s academic dean. Part-time students must have the permission of the Dean of Students to participate in any extra-curricular activity involving intercollegiate competition. Students considering taking fewer than 12 credits should consult their advisor and read carefully the rules governing scholastic probation and dismissal, financial aid and housing. They also should ask if their part-time status will affect their social security, insurance or other related matters. ¬†Please contact the Registrar’s Office at 486-3331 with any questions.
