Most "full-time" undergraduate students who plan to graduate in four years enroll for an academic semester load of 16 credits, and most "full-time" graduate students enroll for an academic semester load of 9 credits. Definitions of full and part-time student status differ for financial aid, ASISU, and NCAA eligibility, and students who intend to meet these requirements may want to verify their full-time status directly with these agencies. At the present time, undergraduate students must enroll for 12 credits or more for financial aid and for NCAA eligibility as a full time student. A semester load of at least 6 credit hours is required for financial aid eligibility as a half time undergraduate student. To qualify for ASISU elective or appointive office, a student must enroll in at least 8 credit hours. For purposes of fee collection, "full-time" fees are assessed whenever the semester load is 8 credits or more.
