Student Status

Section 3.0 of the Graduate School Handbook

Student status is determined by the number of credit hours attempted each autumn or spring semester or each summer term. Full-time status is determined according to a student’s academic status in the program, type of appointment, fees, financial aid eligibility, and visa requirements. Half-time status is defined as half the number of credit hours required for full-time status. Audited credit hours do not count for financial aid, full-time status, or minimum visa requirements.
