A student must take a minimum of 12 credit hours per semester to be classified as full-time for undergraduate students, and nine credit hours for graduate students. As an undergraduate, one may not exceed a load of 20 credit hours (or 15 hours as a graduate student ) without the permission of the appropriate academic dean or department chair and an approved "Request for Waiver of University Policy" form. Petition forms are available at One Stop Student Services. Submission of a petition does not guarantee approval.
In terms of enrollment verification, UNF will certify full-time attendance to third-party agencies, if a student is enrolled in a minimum of 12 hours per semester (fall or spring). A student can be certified as being enrolled full-time during the summer, if one is registered for a combination of nine credit hours between summer A, B, and/or C sessions. Enrollment verification can be requested once the add/drop period has ended.
Please note that a minimum of 12 hours is required to be classified as full-time for financial aid purposes in any semester. For more information about financial aid and pro-ration, please see the financial aid section (regarding reduction of aid), which can be found here.
