Certification of Full-Time Status


All graduate students registering for a minimum of nine credits may be certified as full-time students. While nine credits will make the student eligible to be certified by the college or school as a full-time student, this in no way precludes an individual program, for purposes of cohort design, professional licensing, program accreditation or any other legitimate academic reason approved by the campus curriculum governance, from requiring students to register for more credits in one or more semesters. See information on individual programs for more information. Students eligible for New York State resident tuition must be enrolled in at least twelve credits a semester to qualify for the New York State resident flat-rate tuition.
