Classification of Students

A student will be classified as a sophomore upon the completion of 30 credit hours, junior upon the completion of 60 credit hours and senior upon the completion of 90 credit hours.

  • Full-time - A student who carries 12 or more credit hours of course work in a semester.
  • Part-time - A student who carries fewer than 12 credit hours of course work in a semester.

The typical course load for a full-time student is 15-16 credit hours per semester. Tuition overloads begin at 19 credit hours, and additional charges are calculated on a per-credit hour basis.

Permission to take more than 18 credit hours during a semester must be requested of the Dean of your school. Students with a grade point average below 3.0 will be discouraged from taking more than 18 credits during a semester.

  • Students may take a maximum of 12 credit hours total during the entire summer at The College of Saint Rose.
