Academic Policies & Procedures

Full-time Students

A student is attending full-time if registered for a minimum of 12 credits in any semester. In order to complete degree requirements in the usual four years, students must enroll in an average of 15 credits per semester.

Part-time Students

A student is attending part-time if registered for fewer than 12 credits in a semester. Full-time students may petition to attend part-time for academic reasons with the approval from the student's academic advisor and the Director of Academic Services and Advising.

Part-time students may not reside on campus, or participate in varsity sports.

Non-Degree Students

Non-degree seeking students may take courses for which they have sufficient preparation and background by registering for the courses in the Registrar's Office. Non-degree students are subject to the same academic regulations as other students. Non-degree students who wish to apply for degree status must do so through the Admissions Office. If admitted, a maximum of ten (three or four-credit) courses taken at Stonehill College as a non-degree student may be applied toward completion of a degree program.

Special Non-Degree Students

Some students who would like to attend the College as a degree-seeking student are allowed to take full-time courses for which they have sufficient preparation and background with the approval of the Office of Admissions, in consultation with the Office of Academic Services and Advising. These special non-degree students are subject to the same academic regulations as other students.

Special Non-degree students who wish to apply for degree status must do so through the Admissions Office. If admitted, a maximum of ten (three or four-credit) courses taken at Stonehill College as a non-degree student may be applied toward completion of a degree program. The academic status and continued enrollment of special non-degree students are reviewed at the conclusion of each academic term by the Admissions Office.
