Reduced Course Load
All students on an F-1 visa must enroll in and complete a full course of study throughout the academic year (a minimum of 12 credit hours per semester for undergraduates and 9 credit hours per semester for graduates) and maintain satisfactory academic progress.
ALWAYS consult ISO BEFORE you drop your course load to part-time or withdraw from all your courses; otherwise, you jeopardize your LEGAL status.
If you are in your first or last semester of study and your academic advisor recommends that you drop below full-time, please complete the request for a Reduced Course Load through iStart.
