For financial aid purposes, online student full-time/part-time status will be determined by the number of hours for which the student initially enrolled in the semester.

Definition of Glossary Terms
For example, if a student enrolls for the first time in the semester in the third sub-term, the number of hours the student takes in that sub-term will determine full-time/part-time status. A part-time student who adds courses for subsequent sub-terms of the same semester will still be considered part-time for the entire semester.
