Registration Status & Study Load

Full-time & Part-time Status

  • Undergraduate students registered for 12 or more credits during a semester are classified as full-time.
  • Undergraduate students registered for less than 12 credits during a semester are classified as part-time.
  • Undergraduate students must be registered for at least 6 credits during a semester are considered half-time.

Additional designations are considered for financial aid purposes. Audited courses, continuing education units (CEU's) and year-long courses are not included in the computation of study load for full-time or part-time status.

Study Load

Students may register for a maximum of 19 credits each semester. To register for additional credits, a signed overload petition must be submitted at registration. Overload petitions must have a faculty advisor and the college director's signature(s). To be eligible for overload, students must have a grade point average of 2.75 and be of sophomore standing. For study loads which include non-credit courses, the credit evaluation is based upon credit courses only.
