What happens if I change my approved academic load to part-time?

Sometimes a graduating senior (in their final semester) does not need to attend full-time to graduate. In these cases the financial award will be adjusted (prorated based on number of credits) to recognize the part-time enrollment status. For all other students, the award requires full-time enrollment.

Federal immigration regulations severely limit international students with visas to be enrolled less than full-time, but it may be allowed in some circumstances.  If you find yourself in this position, please contact the International Programs Office
