Registration, Student Enrollment Classifications

​Classifications

College credit is accumulated on the basis of quarter hours earned. Degree-seeking students are classified for administrative purposes as follows: freshmen (less than 44 quarter hours), sophomores (at least 44 but less than 88 quarter hours), juniors (at least 88 but less than 132 quarter hours), seniors (at least 132 quarter hours).

Full-time Student Status

A 12 quarter hour course load is required for undergraduate students to maintain full-time status for purposes of financial aid.

Half-time Student Status

A 6-11 quarter hour course load is considered half-time.

Self-service Enrollment Verifications are available through Campus Connect.
