Concurrent Enrollment

F-1 regulations state that "An F-1 student may be enrolled in two different SEVIS approved schools at one time as long as the combined enrollment amounts to a full time course of study." This is referred to as "concurrent enrollment."

For undergraduate students full-time is defined as 12 credit hours each semester. For graduate students on G1 or G3 level, full-time is defined as 12 credit hours; G2, G4, and G5 level full-time is defined as 9 credit hours.
