Just curious – how many hours are considered a full-time course load under semesters?

For enrollment verification purposes, 12 semester hours (usually four courses) is considered fulltime.

For the purpose of calculating financial aid under current federal guidelines, students are classified as full-time when they are enrolled in at least 12 semester hours. A student who is enrolled in nine, 10 or 11 semester hours is considered three-fourths time, while a student load of between six and eight semester hours is considered half-time. Any student enrolled in five semester hours or less is considered less than half-time.
