Online and Hybrid Class Guidelines

Immigration regulations for F-1 and J-1 students state that only one 3 credit hour class can be used towards the full-time study requirement. You can take more than one online class as long as you are meeting the full-time requirement below.

Undergraduate Students: Full-time requirement is 12 credit hours per semester, so at least 9 credit hours must be taken in a traditional, on-campus class.

MBA and MEd: Full-time requirement is 6 credit hours per semester, so at least 3 credit hours must be taken in a traditional, on-campus. Hybrid and Virtual courses do not count as face-to-face.

During your last semester of studies you may have a minimum of one face-to-face course, if it is the only class that you need to complete your degree requirements. You must notify ISS of this type of registration so that we can report it to immigration.
