Twelve enrolled hours constitute full-time student status, and 15 or more hours is considered a full-time course load. Learning Support courses are included when assessing a student’s course load, but are not counted in GPA calculations and are not transferrable hours. Taking fewer than twelve hours in a term may result in:
- Compromising a student's eligibility to be included on a parent's insurance policy
- Affecting a student's level of financial aid
Both consequences are serious and students should consider them carefully and consult with parents and the Financial Aid office as appropriate. You can reach the Financial Aid office by e-mail at: firstname.lastname@example.org.
