Federal regulations require that you enroll in classes each semester and maintain a full course of study.
This is defined as:
- Undergraduate-level students = Minimum of 12 credits/semester
- Graduate-level students = Minimum of 9 credits/semester
Online class regulation
U.S. Immigration Regulations require that only ONE online class per semester can be used to count toward the minimum number of credits needed for full-time enrollment.
If you only need 1 course to complete your program of study, the course cannot be online or distance learning.
Please make sure you are in compliance with the full-time enrollment requirement. Failure to follow these regulations will affect and possibly end your immigration status. Please contact IPO if you have any questions.
