Enrollment Requirements

All international students in F-1 and J-1 status must be enrolled full-time during fall and spring semesters.

Undergraduate Students must enroll in and complete 12 credit hours every fall and spring semester.

Graduate and Professional Students must enroll in and complete 9 credit hours every fall and spring semester

Summer is considered vacation so there is no full-time enrollment requirement.
There are a few times when you may be enrolled part-time. This includes medical problems (which must be significant and documented by a physician) and the final semester (if you only need 1or 2 classes to complete your degree).

Any part-time enrollment must be authorized in advance by the international advisor and entered in the new SEVIS database. Failure to do this will cause you to violate your legal status in the US.
