guidelines to a full course of study
In order to comply with the requirements of their visa status, both F-1 and J-1 students must maintain a full-time course load or have an approved reduced course load. In the case of the reduced course load, ISSS must approve this before any classes are dropped. It is important to remember that if a student drops below full time at any point in the semester, they would be in violation of their immigration status. If students have any questions about a full course load or dropping a course, please have them speak to ISSS before dropping any course.
