A full-time student is one who is enrolled in 12 or more credit hours of course work per semester. Average full-time enrollment for most students will vary between 15 and 18 hours of credit. Students who wish to carry more than 21 credit hours must have prior approval from the Vice President of Enrollment and Student Experience unless their curriculum requirements, as stated in the catalog, require more than 21 hours in a particular semester. Course schedules and course loads should be carefully planned through consultation with a counselor and approved by the student’s faculty advisor.
Note: The NC General Assembly has set tuition and registration fees on a “per credit hour” basis with a maximum charge for 16 credit hours.
