As an international student, you are required to be enrolled full-time at Stonehill for at least two semesters per calendar year. This means you must register for, and earn grades for, at least 12 required credits as an undergraduate student each semester in order to maintain your F-1 status.

The only exception to this rule is being authorized for a Reduced Course Load (RCL) by the OIP. To be authorized for RCL, you must meet with an international advisor at the OIP. Students may not drop below full-time enrollment prior to consulting with the OIP.

In your final semester, you must be registered for at least one required course within your major and/or minor.
