Certification of Enrollment

Kansas State University reports enrollment status based on the definitions listed below. Information on enrollment is reported through the National Student Clearinghouse (NSC) and is available for the semester beginning the first week of classes.

  • Students participating in internships are not automatically considered full-time for the semester of their internship. The number of hours for an internship is based upon the credit hours granted for the internship.
  • Non-degree students’ enrollment status is reported based on the level of the non-degree program.
  • Students enrolled in a dissertation, thesis, or cooperative education are considered full time regardless of the hours enrolled.
  • Students who withdraw are not considered enrolled in the course once the withdrawal has been processed, and enrollment status will be adjusted as of that time.
  • Students receiving Financial Aid should confirm requirements for financial aid eligibility.

The following tables detail the units (credit hours) that are used to verify full-time, three-quarter time, and half-time enrollment status for students at Kansas State University. Term units can be any combination of undergraduate, graduate, and veterinary medicine units.
