Class Standing

Class standing is determined by credits completed:

  • First-Year Student: 0-23 credits
  • Sophomore: 24-53 credits
  • Junior: 54-86 credits
  • Senior: 87-120 credits

Part-Time Status

If students change from full-time (at least twelve credits) to part-time status, either prior to the beginning of a semester or during a semester, the following may be affected: financial aid, health and counseling services, athletic eligibility, tuition and fees and F-1 student immigration status. Please contact the appropriate offices for specific details.

Athletic Eligibility

All varsity team members must be full-time students with a minimum of 12 credits. A full- time student whose cumulative grade point average (GPA) reflects satisfactory academic standing (minimum 2.00 GPA) is eligible for participation in intercollegiate athletics. A student athlete must complete 24 credits during the previous year to be eligible for the following year. Athletic eligibility is monitored annually by the Athletic Department prior to the beginning of fall semester classes. Students who have not attained satisfactory academic standing prior to this time will be ineligible for varsity athletic participation. Also, students who have not earned enough credits for satisfactory progress will not be eligible to participate in intercollegiate athletics. Students who attain minimum satisfactory academic standing during the year may apply to the director of athletics and the National Collegiate Athletic Association (NCAA) faculty athletic representative for athletic eligibility reinstatement.
