Classification of Students

Full-time student: A student enrolled for 12 or more credit hours during fall and spring semesters and 9 or more credit hours during the summer semester. Part-time student: A student enrolled for fewer than 12 hours during fall or spring semesters or fewer than 9 credit hours during summer semester. 

Declaring, Changing, or Adding Second Majors 

In order to declare a program (degree, diploma or certificate), change programs, or add a second program, the student may either make the change in WebAdvisor under “Change My Academic Program” or see an Academic Advisor in Student Services who will complete a change-of-program form indicating the new or added program of study. 

If a student is not in any program (“Unclassified”) and is not taking any classes that have started already, they will be able to declare a program until the day their first class begins (based on the published start-date, not class meeting times). If a student is taking any 16 week classes (fall or spring) that have already started, they will be able to declare or change their program through the first week of the term. If a student is not taking any classes that have started already, they will be able to declare or change their program until the day their first class begins (based on the published start-date, not class meeting times). The same rules apply for summer semesters. A student may still declare or change their program for a future semester, even if they are taking classes that have already started at the time.
