Special Note About Registration for International Students

International students completing a degree entirely online from outside the United States may enroll in as many online courses as desired for academic credit toward that degree.

Non-immigrant F or J visa holders may count no more than the equivalent of one class, or three credits per semester, toward full time enrollment if taken in an online course or other form of distance education course that does not require physical attendance for classes, examination or other purposes integral to completion of the class.

  1. If you are an F-1 visa holder and your course of study is a language program, no online or distance education classes may be considered to count toward classroom hours or credit.
  2. If you are in your last semester of study and only one course is needed to complete the program, it cannot be an online or other form of distance education course.
