Minimum full-time vs. part-time course loads
- Your "credit load" determines whether you're a full-time (FT) or part-time (PT) student. You can calculate your credit load by adding the credits of all the courses you are taking in a term.
- Most clinical, preceptorship, or practicum placements are considered "full-time" status regardless of number of credits.
- All post-secondary programs have a minimum full-time credit load of 9 credits. Learners who carry less than 9 credits in a term will be considered part-time.
- Certain fees may be different for full-time and part-time students.
International students: Please review the International Student's notes for guidelines. For inquiries please contact the International Education Department.
