  • Enrollment in 12 or more credit hours is considered full-time status.
  • Enrollment in 6 to 11 credit hours is considered half-time status.
  • Enrollment in 1 to 5 credit hours is considered less than half-time status.

For the summer session:

  • Enrollment in 6 or more credit hours is considered full-time status.
  • Enrollment in 3 to 5 credit hours is considered half-time status.
  • Enrollment in 1 to 2 credit hours is considered less than half-time status.
