International students on student visas must be registered as full-time students as arranged by the Office for International Services and the student services advisor. Full-time study for master’s students is designated as 8 units each fall and spring semester; 6 units for doctoral students; and 12 units for undergraduate students.
International students who are not formally registered may be in violation of immigration laws. Please consult the Office for International Services if you have questions related to registration requirements.
Note: “Limited Status” enrollment does not fulfill requirements for a student visa. International students must have the approval of the Office of International Admissions before registering for classes.
