Classification of students is based upon the number of semester hours earned.
The following rules govern the classification of a student:
Students are classified as freshmen until they have successfully completed thirty semester hours. Courses numbered 0-199 are primarily for freshmen.
To be classed as a sophomore, a student must have earned at least thirty semester hours of credit. Courses numbered 200-299 are primarily for sophomores.
To be classed as a junior, a student must have earned at least sixty semester hours of credit. Courses numbered 300-499 are primarily for juniors and seniors.
To be classed as a senior, a student must have earned at least ninety semester hours of credit.
The term upper-classmen as used in this catalog means sophomores, juniors, and seniors.
Courses numbered 500 and above are for graduate students only and cannot be counted toward undergraduate degree credit.
During a regular semester, an undergraduate student enrolled in at least twelve semester hours is considered full-time. During a summer session, a student enrolled in six or more hours is considered full-time. Exceptions to this policy are the following: (1) student teaching, when this is the only course needed and when the course carries less than twelve hours credit; (2) a student enrolled in an internship course.
Interim (mini) courses (taught between semesters) are associated with the next upcoming
Veterans attending the University under the G.I. Bill must maintain full-time status in any semester to be eligible for full benefits.
For students participating in an approved cross-enrollment program, the total hours enrolled at both Southeastern and the college/university at which the student is cross-enrolling will determine the students' full- or part-time enrollment status.
