International students on F and J nonimmigrant status are required by U.S. Immigration to carry a "full course load" (12 credit hours for undergraduates; 8 for graduates) to maintain their status. Exceptions to this rule must be approved in writing by an academic advisor. The Reduced Course Load form can be obtained in International Student and Scholar Services (ISSS) It must be filled out and signed by your academic adviser and returned to the ISSS Office.
Number of credit hours a student carries in a session.
