Classification of Students

A “regular student” or “full-time student” is defined as one enrolled for credit in at least 12 semester hours of course work. A full-time student in the summer is one enrolled for credit in at least six hours. (To receive full VA benefits on a continuous basis, registration must be for at least six semester hours over the duration of the summer session.)

Regular students are classified as follows: Freshmen are those with less than 27 semester hours; sophomores, 27-59 hours; juniors, 60-89 hours; seniors 90 or more hours.

When students participate in an oversees program administered by Centenary College, they will be considered “full-time students” when enrolled for credit in at least nine semester hours of course work. Students will pay for the number of hours in which they actually enroll. CA (2003-04), pp. 48-49

A senior who needs less than 12 hours for completion of graduation requirements will be regarded as a full-time student. CA, p. 27; (11/20/78); CL.
