Student Classification

Full-Time Student: A student who is enrolled in 12 or more undergraduate semester credits.

Part-Time Student: A student who is enrolled in less than 12 undergraduate semester credits. 

Non-Degree Seeking Student: Undeclared: A student who is not admitted into a degree, diploma, or certificate program but is taking undergraduate classes. 

Although a student is considered full-time by carrying 12 semester credits, a semester course load of 15–18 credits is typically needed to complete a one-year program within one year, or a two-year program within two years. Students may choose to extend the length of their program by taking a lighter course load.
