(This classification is pending trustee approval.)
Classification of a student regarding how many total credit hours they are attempting or have earned for a given semester or term. Examples include full-time, three-quarter-time, part-time and zero-time. BYU has designated this as directory information that it may disclose to the public without the student's written consent. Only the classification is directory, not the actual number of credits the student has enrolled in. For individuals who have restricted their records, see Restricted Person.
- Standard Field Name: enrollment_status
- Descriptive Example: Undergraduate students: A student who registers for 12 or more credit hours a semester or 6 or more credit hours a term is full-time. Registration for 9 to 11.5 credit hours per semester or 4.5 to 5.5 credit hours per term is three-quarter-time. Registration for 0.5 to 8.5 credit hours a semester or 0.5 to 4 credit hours a term is part-time status. Enrollment in 0 credit hours (see Discontinuance) is zero-time status.
Graduate students: A student who registers for 8.5 or more credit hours a semester or 4.5 or more credit hours a term is full-time. Registration for 4.5 to 8 credit hours per semester or 2.5 to 4.0 credit hours per term is a half-time student. Students registered in at least 2 credit hours a semester or 1 credit hour a term can petition to be classified as full-time students.
