Fulltime Enrollment Required
Keep in mind that F-1 and J-1 visa holders must enroll full-time for their academic level. Because some courses fill quickly, it’s a good idea to identify a few more courses than you’ll need to maintain your visa status. You can review our Full-time Enrollment Website and check with your VISP advisor if you have any questions.
