International Student Required Coursework

Students are required to be in a degree program and take a full-course of study every semester.  Dropping a class due to low grades is not an option if dropping the class results in the student being enrolled in less than 12 credits for undergraduate programs or less than 9 credits for masters level programs. To meet this full-time requirement only one online class (3 credits or less) may be taken per semester.

Students in their final semester may take less than a full-course of study if they do not need additional courses to graduate. Students must be enrolled in at least one credit in a traditional course during their last term.

Summer term is considered a vacation term for students.  Students do not need to be enrolled during the summer; however, they may enroll in classes if they choose to do so.
