|Frequently Asked Questions|
How many credits should I sign up for?
You must take a minimum of 12 credits to be considered a full-time student. Full-time tuition covers 12-17 credits, or four to five classes, per semester.
How many classes do I need to meet my financial aid or scholarship requirements?
Full-time status is required to maintain eligibility for financial aid, many scholarships, on-campus housing, and insurance. However, please review your individual offers and awards carefully, as some may require more than 12 credits each semester.
Should I take my classes all on the same day?
Try to spread out your class selections throughout the day and week (e.g., do not pick only Monday/Thursday courses). Also, if possible, avoid scheduling more than two classes back-to-back. Seek variety in your schedule in terms of lectures, seminars, and labs, as well as in courses that are heavy in reading or writing. Allow for a minimum of 10 minutes between classes. This is more than enough time to get between classes anywhere on AU's main campus
