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. Requests to exceed the 18-point cap must be submitted to the Committee on Academic Standing, and exceptions will be granted only in rare and unavoidable circumstances. International students on an F-1 student visa are required to attend full time.
