International Student Status

Federal regulations require that all F-1 and J-1 undergraduate and graduate international students maintain full-time status.  International students may engage in one online course per mandatory term (fall and spring term) as long as they are enrolled in a full course load. Students may request part-time status under specified, limited circumstances, including during their final semester.  Prior approval of the Office for International Education is required. 

All international students do not need to comply with the above restrictions for summer course work.
