A student is usually identified as a freshman, sophomore, junior, or senior. Such a classification is applicable to the four years of full-time college attendance. However, an increase in hours earned during one or more semesters or enrollment in summer sessions may result in an accelerated program. Thus, it is more accurate to designate class standing in accordance with semester hours earned.
Effective Fall 2013, the following schedule of hours earned is used to establish class standing:
0 - 14 hours First Semester Freshman
15 - 29 hours Second Semester Freshman
30 - 44 hours First Semester Sophomore
45 - 59 hours Second Semester Sophomore
60 - 74 hours First Semester Junior
75 - 89 hours Second Semester Junior
90 - 104 hours First Semester Senior
105+ hours Second Semester Senior
This schedule has no necessary relationship to the cumulative hours and required grade point average necessary for continuing enrollment.
