Classification of Students

To be classified as full-time for the fall, spring, or summer, undergraduate students must be currently enrolled in at least 12 credits. Full-time classification for students enrolled in instructional periods that do not conform to the regularly scheduled academic sessions will be based on the number of enrolled credits during that period of enrollment (e.g., one credit in one week of instruction would equal the minimum full-time certification standard).

For purposes of designating students by class, the following credit classification ranges are used:

  Freshmen Fewer than 30 credits
  Sophomores 30-59 credits
  Juniors 60-89 credits
  Seniors 90 credits or more

Class designations are based on credits earned rather than credits attempted. Students holding a degree and working toward a second baccalaureate degree may be classified as seniors.
