International Students: Full-time Status (International Office)
To comply with the Student and Exchange Visitor Information System (SEVIS) of the Immigration and Naturalization Service (INS), international students on F-1 and J-1 visas will not be permitted to register for less than a full-time study unless they have their official “Underload Form” approved by both the Associate Dean of Academic Affairs and the International Student Services Office. Full-time status for international students is 12 or more semester hours for a day division; 9 semester hours for evening division; and 5 semester hours for LLM students. Any F-1 or J-1 student who registers for less than a full course of study (other than summer) without a waiver of the full-time requirement will have their registration cancelled by the 14th day of school.
