Full-time Status

Certification of full-, half- or less-than-half-time enrollment status is based on the number of credits registered in a term. Listed below are the requirements that constitute full-time student status for official enrollment certification purposes and financial assistance.

Students should realize that to receive maximum financial aid they must maintain full-time status. 

If a student who is receiving veteran’s benefits or participating in athletics receives a grade of W or NC in a course, that course will not count toward full-time status.
