In order to maintain status, F-1 students must be enrolled full-time for each fall and spring semester. Enrollment in summer sessions is not required, unless a student begins a program of study at IU South Bend in the summer. If you begin your studies in the summer, please note that you will be permitted to enroll during the second eight weeks of the summer term only, and that you will be required to enroll full-time as listed for a regular semester (below).
- For undergraduates this means enrolling in at least 12 credit hours each fall and spring semester.
- For graduate students this means enrolling in at least 8 credit hours each fall and spring semester.
