Student Status

The number of credit hours for which you register defines student status. Student status may have an impact on things such as Financial Aid and eligibility for medical insurance.

  • Full-time student: Enrolled in 12 or more credit hours per semester.
  • Three quarter time student: Enrolled in at least 9 and less than 12 credit hours per semester.
  • Part-time student: Enrolled in less than 6 credit hours per semester.
  • Half-time student: A part-time student enrolled in at least 6 credit hours per semester.

Until the Final Registration & Payment Deadline for the full-semester class session has passed, enrollment certifications are not processed.

Students enrolling in 18 or more credit hours in a semester must have their schedule approved by a counselor before they may register.
