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
To get approval for part-time study, please
