Reduced Course Load Form for International Students
International Students must request approval from the International Student Adviser before dropping any classes. Immigration regulations permit exceptions to the full-time registration requirement in very limited circumstances. Reduced course load can only be approved for one semester for academic reasons and once for the final semester during the student's degree program.
