Full-time Course Credits

Minimum Full-Time vs. Part-time Course Loads

  • A student's credit load determines whether that student is considered full-time or part-time. The credit load is calculated by adding the credit value of all the courses a student is taking in a term.
  • The minimum credit load to be a full-time student is calculated at 60% of the credit load of taking the normal full set of courses for a given term in the program. If a student has less than the minimum full-time credit load, that student is considered part-time.
  • The minimum full-time credit load is determined for each program and different programs may have different minimum full-time credit loads.
  • Certain fees may be different for full-time and part-time students.
  • INTERNATIONAL STUDENTS: please review the International Student's Checklist for the guidelines to register for online classes or part-time course load and the implications on your eligibility to work during your studies or after graduation. For inquiries please contact the International Education Department.
