Request for Part-Time Status (Underload)

All Berea College students are expected to be enrolled full time. To register for fewer than three (3) load credits or drop below three (3) load credits, a degree candidate must have the approval of the Student Admissions and Academic Standing (SAAS) Committee. Ordinarily, part-time status, also referred to as an underload, is approved only for debilitating illness, family responsibilities, approved off-campus employment, or for College employees. The financial aid of part-time students may be affected by an underload. Part-time students may not participate in intercollegiate sports. Applications for part-time status are available in the Student Service Center’s Self-Serve Room (101 Lincoln Hall) and should be submitted to the Student Service Center. Part-time Status Requests are forwarded to the Director of Academic Services for consideration.
