Enrollment status is defined as “enrolled” or “withdrawn” and is determined by the amount of credit hours for which a student is enrolled. Enrollment status is broken down into the following categories:
- Full-time: 12 or more credits
- Three-quarter time: 9-11 credits
- Part-time: 6-8 credits
- Less than part-time: 1-5 credits
The number of credits in which a student is enrolled in determines the amount of financial aid eligibility. Changes in a student’s enrollment status may impact financial aid eligibility.
Students enrolled in a minimum of 6 credits may be eligible to participate in some financial assistance programs. Students should always discuss changes in status with a financial aid advisor to determine changes in eligibility and possible consequences.
