Important information for International Students with a F-1 Visa

During fall and spring semesters, International Students who are here on a F-1 Visas must take at least 9 of the 12 credits required for full time status on campus.  They can take up to 3 online learning credits per semester to make the 12 credit minimum load required to maintain status.  Online credits in excess of the 12 credit minimum can be taken each semester.  Bottom line - during fall and spring International Students must enroll in 9 credits of courses that meet face-2-face and must enroll in no less than 12 credits.

During summer semesters, International Students can take or not take whatever they want - face-2-face or online.  Maintenance of F-1 Visa Status is a concern only during fall and spring semester.
