Enrollment

International students in F-1 or J-1 status are required to maintain full-time enrollment throughout their program, uphold good academic standing, and make normal academic progress toward their degree objective.

Full-time enrollment at NC State University is normally defined as 12 or more credit hours for undergraduate students and a minimum of 9 hours per semester for graduate students. One (3 credit) online or distance education course may be used each semester to help satisfy full-time enrollment requirements. Students who will take only one course in a semester are not permitted to take that course through on-line or distance education.

Please note: Requirements for full-time enrollment may vary each semester based on remaining program requirements, pending completion of the academic program, and/or thesis research.
