As an international student, one of the most important aspects of your education is maintaining your F-1 status to be in compliance with federal regulations. The below information explains how to maintain your full-time enrollment and F-1 student status.
Closely following these requirements will allow you to enjoy your time at Liberty and focus on your education!
As a condition of your F-1 student status, you must be enrolled full-time each fall and spring semester based on the degree level you are pursuing.
Undergraduate: 12 credit hours
Graduate:9 credit hours
Doctorate: 6 credit hours
Please keep in mind the following requirements to keep your F-1 student status:
You must have permission in advance from the International Student Center to drop below full-time enrollment for any reason. Failure to gain approval will cause you to fall out of status, and your I-20 will be terminated.
You may not withdraw from classes placing you below full-time even after the Add/Drop Period.
Failing to attend class may cause professors to either drop you from the class or give you an 'FN', which is a University Withdrawal. If you receive an FN that puts you below full time, your status will be in jeopardy of being terminated.
You are not required to be enrolled during the summer term.
You may enroll for less than full-time during your final semester in a degree program only after completing a request form and receiving approval from the DSO prior to the beginning your final semester.
Taking Online Courses
Only one (1) online class may be counted towards your full-time load during the fall and spring semesters. However, once your full-time load requirement is met for a given semester, you may take as many online courses as you wish.
Undergraduate students may take 9 residential credits and 3 or more credits online
Graduate students may take 6 residential and 3 or more credits online
Doctoral students may take 3 residential and 3 or more credits online
