How registration affects student status

Student status refers to how the University views you as a student. Most students fit into one of the following categories based on how they were admitted to the University and how they are progressing toward a degree:

  • matriculated/non-matriculated
  • full-time/part-time
  • active/not active

Matriculated students have been accepted into a degree program within University. Non-matriculated students are those students who have not been admitted to a degree program at the University. Non-matriculated undergraduate students can take no more than 15 credits before they must apply to a degree program at the University.

Full-time students are taking between 12 and 18 credits per semester. These students are charged on a tuition basis. 3/4-time students are taking between 9 and 11.5 credits per semester. These students are charged reduced tuition. Part-time students are taking between .5 and 8.5 credits per semester. These students are charged at the per-credit rate.

Active status, full-time students are expected to register each spring and fall until they complete their degree requirements. If a full-time student misses more than one semester consecutively, they must reapply to the University and will then be matriculated under the bulletin of the readmission date.

Part-time students may continue on active status for three semesters without taking classes. After the third consecutive semester of non-registration, they must reapply for admission and will be matriculated under the bulletin of the readmission date.

Notes: 1) Graduate programs and special undergraduate programs, such as Bachelor of University Studies and Paralegal Studies, may calculate status differently. For more information about your specific program, contact your advisor.   2) Financial aid eligibility is affected by your registration status. Check with your financial aid officer if you have any questions.
