F-1 international students are required to maintain full-time enrollment every fall and spring semester. Full-Time enrollment for long semesters (fall and spring) is 12 semester hours for undergraduates and 9 semester hours for graduate students. Full-time enrollment is also required in the summer if that is your first semester at UTA. (Please check with an OIE advisor during advising hours for summer full-time enrollment guidelines.) Immigration has a limited number of acceptable reasons why a student may drop below the full-time enrollment requirement. Students must receive approval from the OIE before falling below full time enrollment. The form below is necessary to receive approval for a full-time enrollment waiver.
