Freshman, Sophomore, Junior, or Senior
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. Conversely, a smaller than normal class load may result in a prolonged program. Thus, it is more accurate to designate class standing in accordance with semester hours earned.
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.
