The office of the registrar is the official designated authority for determining full-time status for all students requesting enrollment verifications for insurance or any type of financial aid or loans. A full-time undergraduate student is defined as one who is registered for at least 15 quarter hours of credit per quarter. Undergraduate students may register for a maximum of 20 quarter hours per quarter, provided they have maintained a grade point average of at least 3.0 during the previous quarter. A full-time graduate student is defined as one who is registered for at least 10 quarter hours of credit per quarter. Graduate students may register for more than 15 quarter hours only with the permission of the chair and by contacting their graduate staff adviser.
Less than full-time enrollment status may affect financial aid such as loans and grants, scholarships, university housing, health insurance and visas (if applicable).
