Enrollment as an Undergraduate Student

Your initial offer of financial assistance assumes you will enroll for 12–18 undergraduate credits per quarter.

Credits are reviewed as of the fifth day of the quarter. Your enrollment at this point will be your financial aid enrollment. Some courses added between the fifth and tenth day (such as independent studies and internships) will also count toward your enrollment for the quarter.

If you register for fewer than 12 credits, your Offer of Financial Assistance may need to be adjusted. If you plan to enroll for fewer than 12 credits for any quarter, notify SFS as soon as possible.

If you register for fewer than 6 credits (5 or fewer), you will not be eligible for financial aid. Exception: Students who are otherwise eligible for a Pell or Washington State Need Grant may qualify for these grants at less than six credits.

Courses that do not count toward your degree cannot be covered by financial aid; this includes media courses, audited courses, 5000-level courses, and graduate courses.
