Full-time Student

A student must register for at least three "Load Credits" during a regular term to be considered full-time. To maintain Satisfactory Academic Progress (see SAP Chart in the Academic Performance Standards section), students should average 8 credits per academic year. No student may register for more than four and one-half load credits without obtaining approval from his or her Academic Advisor for an overload. (See “Overloads” in Registration Information section to follow.) Registration for less than three "Load Credits" must be pre-approved by the Office of Academic Services. (See “Request for Part-time Status (Underload)” in this section and “Load Credit” in the Academic Dictionary.)
