Classification of Students
Full-Time Student: a student who carries 12 or more credits.
Part-Time Student: a degree or certificate candidate who carries fewer than 12 credits per semester.
Nondegree Student: a student who is not enrolled in a degree or certificate major. Nondegree status is specifically for students who wish to pursue course work with neither the responsibilities nor the benefits of degree status. A nondegree student can select courses without regard to degree or certificate requirements, assuming all course prerequisites have been met. A nondegree student may register for no more than six credits per semester, is not eligible for financial aid, and is not required to pay the application fee. If and when a nondegree student wishes to transfer to degree-seeking status, the rules in effect for degree-seeking applicants will apply.
Satisfactory Progress: As long as a student is officially enrolled and permitted to continue his/her studies toward a degree or certificate at the College, the student will be considered to be making satisfactory progress. Students receiving financial aid must meet additional criteria to remain eligible for continued financial aid.
