Full-Time/Part-Time Status

Full-time enrollment status is an eligibility requirement for most forms of financial aid, health insurance coverage, and intercollegiate athletics, and provides priority registration for on-campus housing. Full-time or part-time status is determined on the basis of the number of credits for which a student is enrolled after the tenth day of classes each semester. Students registered for 1 to 11 credits are considered part time; those registered for 12 or more credits, full time. Students are responsible for determining the implications of changing their enrollment status.
