Request "Part-Time Study" Status

There are several special circumstances in which the government allows international students to take fewer than 12 credits:

  • Last quarter: students who are in the final quarter of their program are allowed to take only the classes they need to graduate, even if it means dropping below 12.
  • Medical Issues:  students who suffer from a medical condition that makes a full time course load difficult.
    Note: Students must submit a doctor's note and be approved for part time study before dropping below 12 credits!

To get approval for part-time study, please submit the appropriate form at
