In order for undergraduate non-funded students (students who are not receiving student financial aid for a new term) to be granted full-time status, the minimum course load required is 2 credits per month. This aligns with the Revenue Canada definition.
For AU Individualized Study students, this means that they need to be actively registered in four, 3-credit courses, all commencing on the same start date. (4 x 3 = 12; 12 credits/six month contract = 2 credits per month).
In order for non-funded graduate students (students who are not receiving government student financial aid) to be granted full-time status, the minimum course load required is .75 credits per month. For AU graduate students, this means they need to be actively registered in one, 3-credit course to be full time for four months (3 credits/four-month contract = .75 credits per month) or two, 3-credit, six-month individualized study courses, commencing on the same start date. (3 credits x 2 = 6; 6 credits/six month contract = 1 credit per month).
