Undergraduate students who enroll for 12 or more credit hours (excluding auditing a class) during fall semester, spring semester and/or the 12-week summer semester are classified as full-time students. Full-time student classification also is granted to students who enroll for six or more credit hours during a six-week summer term. Under Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973, some students with disabilities may enroll for less than 12 credit hours but, by exception, still qualify as full-time students. These cases will be approved on a case-by-case basis.

Graduate students are classified as full-time students if enrolled in six (6) or more credit hours (excluding auditing a class) during a fall or spring semester or for four (4) or more credit hours (excluding auditing a class) during a summer term.​
