How many credits do you need to take to be considered a full-time student?

Full-time study in an undergraduate program is defined as 12 or more credits per term. All students in good standing may take a maximum of 18 credits per semester without special permission, with the exception of a student on the Dean's List who may take a maximum of 21 credits per semester. Students may exceed this credit maximum with the permission of a dean. Except for graduating seniors, students taking less than 12 credits during a semester will not be certified as full-time students.
