Dear College Students,

ISS would like to remind you that in order to maintain your F-1 immigration status you must study full time every quarter.

  • FULL TIME = 12 CREDITS

  • Minimum 7 credits in class/hybrid

Online classes limit: if you take 12 credits, only 5 credits can be online.

If you are graduating, you CANNOT take all online classes.

Please do not wait to contact an advisor if you have any questions about the full time requirement or online class restriction. If you do not meet the above requirements and you need to add additional classes you must do so as soon as possible. Class space is limited, and many classes will become full. Remember that it is your responsibility to register full time and maintain your immigration status. ISS Advisors are available to assist you!
