The ability to take semesters off varies based on whether you are an undergraduate or a graduate student.
– You must take at least 1 credit hour in any 3 consecutive semesters to maintain active undergraduate student status.
– You must take at least 1 credit hour in a given academic year to maintain active graduate student status.
– Always check with your Student Success Coordinator or Academic Advisor prior to taking any semesters off as there could be nuances that are specific to your degree program.
To be a part-time student, you only need to take 1 credit hour a semester. Most students take between 3-6 credit hours (1-2 classes) each semester.
It is important that you factor in Financial Aid when considering your class load. The number of hours you take each semester directly impacts your eligibility for Financial Aid.
Each program will also have its own plan of study. At UC, you will have a Student Success Coordinator help guide you through how many courses you should be taking and in what order. They’re here to help you on your journey to graduation.
Yes. Many of our students qualify for some type of financial aid.
Sources of aid:
Yes. The vast majority of our students work throughout their time in their academic program. It is important to assess course load and financial aid to understand how to balance school and working.
If possible, students may cut down on their work hours during a clinical portion of a program.
Most of our programs do not require onsite visits, but there are a couple of exceptions.
If you are interested in pursuing the Master of Science in Nursing-Nurse Midwifery, you will have two skills intensives that take place on campus. The Post-Master’s Psychiatric-Mental Health Nurse Practitioner program has one onsite visit that occurs during the first semester.
Programs can be completed full-time or part-time. Many programs are set up to be part-time, with most containing fewer than 10 credit hours in any given semester. We know you have a lot going on, so want to make sure that school can fit into your schedule. Note: There are some exceptions.
