Each semester all international students must complete a certain minimum number of credits to be considered "full-time" for immigration purposes:
United States Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) allows the International Student Advisor to make exceptions to the full time requirement in four (4) types of situations. If your current situation qualifies you to drop below than full-time enrollment based on one of the four (4) following requirements, please come to OIE to collect the Exception to Full-time Form and to meet with one of the International Student Advisors before the beginning of the semester to check if you qualify for the exception.
Read the information below and prepare the required documentation from your doctor or academic advisor. Then, schedule an appointment with the International Student Advisor for approval before dropping below full-time enrollment.
