Graduate Student Enrollment Status Policy Statement
Policy Number: 3364-77-05 http://www.utoledo.edu/policies/
The university recognizes the role of enrollment status in support of satisfactory academic progress towards degree completion. A student's enrollment status is determined by the number of class hours the student is enrolled in credit bearing courses during a semester or during an entire summer term. The definitions are as follows: A full-time graduate student is enrolled for a minimum of 9 or more semester hours in credit bearing courses. A full-time student who elects to enroll in more than 18 credit hours in fall or spring (combined total of more than 15 semester credit hours in summer) is considered to be on academic overload. A part-time graduate student is enrolled for fewer than 9 semester hours in credit bearing courses. Audit means a student is enrolled in credit bearing courses but elects not to receive credit. A student enrolled in a full-time and transcripted internship placement will be considered a full-time student for purposes of reporting to the National Clearinghouse if the time commitment required for the internship equates to the time commitment of a graduate student enrolled in 9 semester hours. This policy applies to all graduate students. Each college may establish additional credit hour requirements based upon degree program requirements, graduate assistantship appointments, or other considerations deemed necessary to the program or college.
