Undergraduate Academic Load

A typical load for a full-time undergraduate student is 15 credit hours per semester. A minimum full-time load is 12 credit hours per semester. No undergraduate student may exceed a load of 20 credit hours without permission of the appropriate academic dean, department chair, or advising unit.

UNF will certify full-time attendance to programs and agencies (that do not specify minimums for undergraduate student enrollment) for students if the student is enrolled in a minimum of 12 credit hours per semester. Enrollment verifications can only be processed once the add/drop period has ended.

The definition of full-time enrollment at UNF for Federal Title IV financial aid purposes is 12 credit hours per semester. However, certain institutional financial aid awards may require that students be enrolled in at least 15 semester credit hours to be eligible.
