Matriculation/Course Load Status
A matriculated student is one who has been formally accepted
for admission to the college, has registered in a major or designated
program and is pursuing courses toward a degree or certificate.
A student will lose matriculated status if he or she does not enroll
for more than two terms.
Regardless of matriculation status, a student who carries 12
or more term hours during the fall or spring term is considered
a full-time student.
One credit hour is granted based on one period of classroom work
per week or one session of laboratory work of two or more periods.
A minimum of two hours of outside preparation is expected of the
student for each period of classroom work.
NOTE: Full-time status for New York State scholarships is
determined by enrollment in 12 or more degree applicable hours.
Courses in which a grade of "D" or better was previously
earned are not counted toward the 12-hour full-time study requirement.
