New Definitions of Full Time and Part Time Study

Effective summer 2015, the College is implementing new definitions for the requirement of full time and part time study as reflected in the table below.  These definitions are consistent with the definitions used by Federal Financial Aid for the determination of student funding assistance. As you plan for your course of study and your need for financial aid, refer to the table below to assist you in the process of registering for courses and applying for aid. Since your course of study and financial situation are variable and personal, please seek the answers to your financial aid questions from Deb Wilke, Financial Aid Officer, Room 234, 402-481-8984.
