Undergraduate Catalog 2015-2016

Enrollment Status

A full-time undergraduate student is one who is enrolled in twelve or more semester credit hours at the end of the add/drop period for a given semester. Undergraduate students who later drop below twelve credit hours will no longer be reported as full-time students from that date forward.

Undergraduate students who are enrolled in six or more semester credit hours, but less than nine semester credit hours, will be reported as half-time students. Students enrolled in nine hours but less than twelve hours will be reported as three-quarter time students.  Students enrolled in less than six hours will be reported as less than half-time students.

A student may be classified differently for financial aid, housing, or other University functions (such as athletic eligibility). Students who are considering dropping from full-time to below full-time during a semester are strongly encouraged to contact these offices before making this decision.
