All F1 students must enroll in, and must complete, at least 12 credit hours each semester with a performance grade (A, B, C, etc.). 'WX', 'I', 'WQ', and other markings that are not performance grades have serious F1 consequences. Failure to finish at least 12 credit hours with performance grades at the end of the class/term is a violation of full-time student status. F1 students require advance approval of the International Center to enroll in fewer than 12 credit hours.
Students who arrive in the fall or spring are not required to enroll in summer courses, unless you are an IEP student who has been issued a language training I-20 visa. If your first term of study is the summer semester, or you are an F1 IEP student, you must enroll in at least 3 credit hours for each summer session (6 total). Session I of the summer runs from June to late June/early July and session II runs from early July to early August.
If you’re having issues with grades, don’t know if you can pass a class, or are told that you are on probation,
talk to your teacher. If you still have problems, see an International Center advisor.
