F-1 Responsibilities and Maintaining Status
Full-time registration is required of all F-1 students.
You must register for and complete a full course of study each fall and winter semester. Full-time is defined as completing twelve (12) credit hours in a semester.
- F-1 students may register for 1 or more online classes in a semester, but at least 9 credits must be completed on campus that same semester.
- Annual leave (vacation) is only available in the summer semester. Students beginning F-1 status with the summer semester must attend full-time summer, fall and winter before taking an annual leave.
