Courseload for Full- and Part-time Students

The School of General Studies permits students to study at their own pace, whether it be on a full- or part-time basis. Full-time status is defined as taking a minimum of 12 points per term. Students may not register for more than 18 points in a given semester without the permission of their respective GS advisors. Permission is granted only to students who carried a course load of 12 or more points in the preceding term with a grade point average of 3.0 or higher. International students on an F-1 student visa are required to attend full time.
