Part time last semester

Postby Guestguest » Sun Apr 15, 2018 9:13 pm

Hi all,
I've reviewed my degree plan and it looks like my final semester I'll only need 8or 9 credits of classes, when full time is 12.
Would the program be ok with that, only being one semester?

Having just viewed the orientation, it states that you have to be full-time even if in your last semester and only needing less than the full-time status minimum credits. So, I think you will still have to take some extra classes to fill your minimum.

While technically you'd only go on probation if this was a one time thing I would not suggest risking it the very last semester of your degree. It's too much of a risk that they say no you're out and make you pay back all the scholarship money.

So would they be ok with paying for an extra class not on the degree plan just to make it full time?

Yes. However, I would contact SMART and let them know the situation and, perhaps, your SF to get a recommendation for a good elective(s) to take that could be useful.

You can loop SMART in if you want, or you could just take a fun 3 hour class of your choosing. I wouldn't feel any obligation.
