Full time Students
*Four or five courses is considered full-time enrollment. For students who have matriculated full-time, the expectations are that requirements for the degree will be completed within eight years from the initial enrollment.
Three or less courses is considered part-time enrollment. Students who have been admitted to a degree program may occasionally choose to take fewer courses than a full-time enrollment. Part time students, like full time students, are expected to graduate within eight years of the initial enrollment.
Special Students (Nondegree Students)
A limited number of nondegree students are permitted to register for classes at Saint Anselm College on a course-by-course basis. Nondegree students are not permitted to enroll for a full-time course load (four to five courses) and are ordinarily not allowed to take more than six courses.
*Full time students taking four courses who wish to withdraw from another course should be advised that their full-time status will change to part time status which could jeopardize their financial aid and on-campus housing.
