Course Registration

To maintain F1 or J1 status, you must enroll full time each term. Full time status is defined as at least 12 credits/term for undergraduates, and at least 9 credits/term for graduate students.

If you have any questions about your registration status, please contact your Class Dean (undergraduates) or your Academic Advisor (graduates).

Remember: If you are registered less than full time, this will influence your immigration (F-1/J-1) status!

If you are concerned about your registration status and its influence on your immigration (F-1/J-1) status, you should contact the OIS immediately at ois@fordham.edu

If you believe you will not be able to enroll full time, please see our Reduced Course Load section for information about obtaining immigration authorization for a less-than-full-time registration.
