Credit Load Status

Within each school students are accorded full time status on the basis of their credit load in that semester. For M.A. or S.T.L. students who are registered for thesis credits (IS 899/S.T.L. 989) or continuing thesis guidance (IS 8991/S.T.L. 9891), full time status is determined in consultation with the Advisor/Thesis Director and the Dean of Studies. M.Div. students in parish internships are considered full time due to the number of contact hours required for the internship placement.
