Full-time Status, Reduced Course Loads & Dual Enrollment

Full-Time Status

F-1 and J-1 students must enroll in a full course load each fall and spring semester.

Undergraduates – 12 credits
Masters students– 9 credits
Doctoral students – 6 credits

Reduced Course Loads

Students in the situations listed below can apply for a reduced course load by submitting an Application for a Reduced Course Load to the Center for Global Education:

  • Students encountering academic or language difficulty (only for one semester of your entire degree program; typically during your first semester at the College)
  • Students who have encountered a medical problem (maximum of 12 months; requires documentation from a medical professional or a licensed psychologist)
  • Students who are in their final term of study and do not need a full course of study to complete the degree.

*The CGE must approve your Application for Reduced Course Load BEFORE you drop below a full course load.

Dual Enrollment

If you plan to take a class at another college or university and would like those credits to count towards your full-time enrollment, you must submit the Dual Enrollment Approval Form to the Center for Global Education by the last day to add a class at Edgewood for the current semester. You are still required to maintain full-time enrollment between your attendance at Edgewood College and the other institution.

Undergraduates must enroll in a minimum of 12 credits of which at least 6 credits must be taken at Edgewood College. Graduate students must also take half of their full-time credits at Edgewood College.

To receive approval for dual enrollment:

Submit the Approval for Dual Enrollment Form to CGE by the last day to add a class for the semester at Edgewood. Before making any decisions about dual enrollment, discuss your plans with your academic advisor to ensure that the course(s) you plan to take at another institution will transfer to Edgewood and fulfill requirements for your program.

**Please Note: If dropping courses at the other institution makes you less than full-time, you will need to consider if you are eligible to apply for a Reduced Course Load (see information above). Submit an application for a Reduced Course Load to CGE BEFORE dropping the course. You must maintain at least half of your full-time credits at Edgewood College.
