See Tuition Eligibility Guidelines under Student Payment Center.

 

Determining How Full-Time vs Part-Time Students Are Billed

In the Fall and Spring Terms:

Undergraduate students registered for 12 to 18 credits in the Fall and Spring Terms are regarded as full-time students, and are assessed the current undergraduate "flat" tuition rate for their academic center.
Undergraduate students registered for fewer than 12 credits are considered part-time, and are billed on a per-credit basis.

Graduate students registered for 9 to 15 credits in the Fall and Spring Terms are regarded as full-time students, and are assessed the current graduate "flat" tuition rate for their academic center.

Graduate students registered for fewer than 9 credits are considered part-time, and billed on a per-credit basis.

Students will be charged per credit for each credit exceeding the maximum full-time credit limit.

In the Summer Term:

All students are billed on a per-credit basis in the Summer Term with the exception of students in the School of Dental Medicine Dental Hygiene Certificate Program; the Swanson School of Engineering undergraduate program; the Katz Graduate School of Business Full-time MBA, MBA/MS and EMBA Programs; and the School of Nursing Accelerated Nursing Program.
