Enrollment of less than 12 hours total (all sessions) for any Fall, Spring, or Summer term is defined as being less than full-time. Maximum hours should not exceed individual session limits or the term maximum.

* Students must have approval from the appropriate official in their degree-granting college for hours in excess of the maximum.

NOTE: ID card validation of full-time for student activity purposes is based on a minimum of six credit hours per semester and does not necessarily constitute a full-time academic load.
