Classification Of Students

Students who have earned 30 hours or fewer are classified as freshmen. Those who have earned 31 hours or more are classified as sophomores. Students are classified as full time or part time according to the number of credit hours attempted. A full-time student is enrolled for a minimum of 12 credit hours. Students are considered part time if they are enrolled for fewer than 12 credit hours. For purposes of Title IV financial aid programs, a student must be enrolled for 9-11 credit hours to be considered three-quarter time and 6-8 credit hours to be considered half-time.
