Graduate Student Credit Loads

Graduate students enrolled for a 16-week term will be considered full-time if registered for nine or more semester credit hours. In the case of shorter terms, this basis will be pro-rated according to the length of the term, e.g., for an eight-week term, a full-time student must be enrolled for at least 5 semester credit hours. Quantitative determinations of part-time status are based on the ratio of hours taken to full-time hours. For example, for a normal 16-week term, half-time status would be five semester credit hours; and for an eight-week term, half-time status would be three semester credit hours.

For graduate students taking English as a Second Language (ESL) courses, one ESL course will be considered equivalent to three academic credit hours in determining full-time status. Students taking a combination of ESL and academic courses may not enroll for a combined total of more than five courses in any one term. Any exception to this policy requires the approval of the Office of the Graduate Programs.

For graduate students taking undergraduate courses, full-time status will be determined without regard to the level of the course (one undergraduate hour equals one graduate hour).

Any student enrolled for a minimum of 3-credits in a designated full-load course will be considered full-time by Florida Tech.  Please note students should confirm with their advisors, ISSS and/or Financial Aid if only a 3-hour registration in one of these courses meets their needs. Please also confirm that such registration meets the registration requirements of any other agency that may impose minimum registration requirements on students.
