Enrollment Policies

Enrollment at Drexel University is determined by your acceptance into a program and your attendance of courses or other official program activities (such as co-op). You are verified as enrolled when a term begins. Your enrollment status at the university is quantified by the amount of credits you're registered for during a term. 

Undergraduate Students

Full-time Status - You will be classified as being enrolled full-time if you are registered for 12 or more credits for a term.

Part-time Status - You will be classified as being enrolled part-time if you have registered for less than 12 credits per term.

Less than Half-time Status - You will be classified as less than half-time when you are enrolled for less than 4.5 credits for a term.

Saturday Scholars

Enrollment for Saturday Scholars is determined by the combined number of credits registered for in both Part A and Part B of a term. In order for a Saturday Scholar to be considered part-time for the purposes of financial aid eligibility, they must be registered for credits in both Part A and Part B; registration in only one part of the term is not sufficient to meet the minimum part-time status regardless of the number registered credits.
