All international students on F-1 or J-1 visas must be enrolled as full-time students
during the fall and spring terms. If a student withdraws from a course and falls below
the minimum number of credits, he or she will be under-enrolled and out of status.
DO NOT advise a student to drop a course to save his or her GPA if it puts the student below
There are exceptions to the full-time enrollment requirements, but students must file
a Reduced Course Load (RCL) form with International Services. (See RCL in the Terms to Know).
