Enrollment status can only consist of those courses required for graduation or as a prerequisite for courses required in the program. Audited classes will not be considered in determining a student’s enrollment status. For federal aid programs only, once a student has completed a course two times, that course cannot count in the enrollment status. The amount in the original award notification is based on full-time enrollment. A student who is not full-time will have their award reduced based on the actual number of credit hours enrolled. Students who are not full-time do not pay as much for tuition and fees. A student’s enrollment status is determined through the census date of each semester. Adjustments, including complete withdrawal of aid, are made based on the enrollment status through the census date.
For Converse II students: If you enroll during the Jan term, the credit hours you take will be added to any spring credit hours to determine your enrollment status for the spring semester. Any anticipated aid you have for spring can be used to cover your costs for the Jan term, and any resulting credit balance will be disbursed for the spring semester.
All the terms in a summer semester are combined to determine the enrollment status for the summer semester. Full-time status consists of enrollment in a minimum of 12 credit hours. Three-quarter time status consists of enrollment in 9 to 11 credit hours. Half-time status consists of enrollment in 6 to 8 credit hours. Less than half-time status is enrollment in 1 to 5 credit hours.
