Enrollment Requirements

The Office of Financial Aid & Scholarships (OFA&S) considers undergraduate, 2nd BA/BS, and post-baccalaureate Teacher Credential students to be enrolled full-time if they are registered in at least 12 units per term and working toward their stated degree objective. Graduate and Doctorate students are considered to be enrolled full-time if they are registered in at least 8 units (which should typically consist of 500 and 600-level coursework) per term toward their stated degree objective.*
