Enrollment Requirements for Visa Students

Primary tabs

In order to maintain lawful status, F & J students are required to be enrolled full-time (12+ hrs.) each semester unless a vacation semester has been earned OR has been approved for an authorized reduced course load (Academic RCL or Medical RCL) by OIE. Please remember that you cannot drop below 12 credits before prior approval from OIE. For more information, please visit

Note: only 3 credits of online courses can count towards a student's full-time enrollment during a required semester.

Undergraduate students are not able to utilize audit hours to count towards their full-time enrollment of 12 credits.
