For accelerated parts of term (i.e., Summer & Winter Intercession) use the chart to assist with enrollment.
|4 week: 3 hours|
|6 week: 4 hours|
|8 week: 6 hours|
|12 week: approx. 9 hours|
|16 week: 12 hours|
*Graduate is based on school’s rate of pursuit
Rule of thumb for 16 weeks: 8-week courses back-to-back equate to ONE 16-week class
Scenario: If a student is enrolled in 9 credits in the full term (16 weeks) and only ONE 8-week course, the student is only considered full-time by the VA for the time student is enrolled in the 8-week course. Once course is over, the student is no longer full-time.
