Classification

Students are classified at the beginning of each semester on the basis of work already completed as follows:

Freshman: Approved entrance credit
Sophomore: 30 semester hours college credit
Junior: 60 semester hours college credit
Senior: 90 semester hours college credit.

Full-time: Students carrying 12 hours or more each semester. Participation in intercollegiate athletics, University traveling groups, academic scholarships, student government scholarships and most financial aid programs require this minimum academic load. Students should be aware that completing only 12 hours per semester will not enable them to graduate in eight semesters and that some programs may require more than eight fifteen-hour semesters to complete.

Part-time: Students currently enrolled for fewer than 12 hours of work for college credit.
