Change of Status

Transfer to Full-Time Status

Part-time students who have completed the required portion of the curriculum may transfer to full-time status simply by completing the declaration of status form included in the registration materials. Students who have not completed the required curriculum (terms one through four) may transfer to full-time status with the permission of the dean. This permission is generally granted, but the student must obtain schedule approval for each subsequent full-time term until all required courses have been completed. The purpose of this rule is to ensure that students do not elect upper-class courses for which they have not taken the underlying first-year work. Students may transfer to full-time status at any point up to the beginning of the term in which transfer is contemplated. Early notification is desirable, however, because students who transfer after registration is complete will not be able to register for closed courses.

Transfer to Part-Time Status

Full-time students, including those who may have begun as part-time students, may transfer to part-time status, following the same procedure required to transfer to full-time status.
