Student Enrollment Status
Student status is an important concept for financial aid eligibility (for both initial awards and repayment requirements), intercollegiate athletic participation, and health and life insurance eligibility. Students who initially  enroll full-time should contact the Financial Aid office with
questions about the consequences of dropping to part-time status.

Student status (full-time or part-time) is calculated on the number of hours of enrollment for the term. The University defines full-time status for undergraduate students according to the following guidelines:

Semester I or II ..........................Enrollment in 12 or more hours.
Spring Term ...............................Enrollment in 3 or more hours.
Summer Session ......................Enrollment in a total of 12 hours.

A student falling below these guidelines at any time during the semester or session is considered part-time.

Graduate students are considered full-time when enrolled in nine or more hours.


Regular Full-Time Semester Load
Full-time students who plan to complete degree requirements in the prescribed time (four years for a baccalaureate degree and two years for an associate degree) should register for 15 to 18 hours each regular semester (Semester I and II). Students earning fewer than 15 to18 hours or those needing remedial (noncredit) courses will be able to complete degree requirements in the normal time only by taking additional hours during the regular semesters or summer school or earning hours through examination.

Semester load restrictions are placed on students who are on academic probation or who have been admitted as special undergraduates (SPU). Restrictions are removed when the student raises his or her grade point average to an acceptable level. (Students admitted as special undergraduates should consult the Special Student brochure for enrollment guidelines.) Students who have load restrictions should plan to attend summer school or additional semesters in order to complete degree requirements.

Credit hours above 18 in a given semester are considered overload. An additional fee is charged for all hours above 18 (not including half-credit-hour classes).
