Full-Time Status

To be considered a full-time student, undergraduates must be registered for at least 12 hours. In some circumstances, students may be granted a reduced course load accommodation from the Services for Students with Disabilities.

Students dropping courses must be mindful of their total hours. If dropping below full-time, they could face issues with on-campus housing, financial aid, scholarships, parent’s insurance, or visa status (for international students).

An undergraduate enrolled in at least six hours of coursework in his or her semester of expected graduation may also be considered full-time. The student must visit the Dean’s Office (GEB 2.200) after twelfth class day to request verification of their final hours and expected graduation date. The Registrar’s Office will certify the student as full-time below twelve hours when appropriate.
