To maintain full-time status, you must be enrolled at Bryant University in at least four courses (12 credits) per semester. A normal class load is five courses (15 credits). Students are permitted to carry six courses (up to 20 credits) with a minimum cumulative GPA of 2.5 at the end of the previous semester; a minimum GPA of 3.2 and an extra fee is required to carry more than 20 credits.
The order of registration by Student Classification Number (SCN) is as follows:
8, 7, 6, 5, 4, 3, 2, 1
Your classification number is based on the number of credits completed to date, and is calculated as follows:
0 – 14 1 (First-Semester Freshmen)
15 – 29 2 (Second-Semester Freshmen)
30 – 44 3 (First-Semester Sophomore)
45 – 59 4 (Second-Semester Sophomore)
60 – 74 5 (First-Semester Junior)
75 – 89 6 (Second-Semester Junior)
90 – 104 7 (First Semester Senior)
105 – and up 8 (Second Semester Senior)
Seniors in their last semester may register for six (3 credit) courses plus up to two (1 credit) lab courses. All other students may register for only five (3 credit) courses plus up to two (1 credit) labs during early registration. After early registration has ended, students with a minimum GPA of 2.5 may add a sixth course by contacting the Undergraduate Advising Office. Students are advised to select a full complement of courses during early registration, since add/drop is designed to amend schedules not to build them.
The purpose of mid-term grades for first-year students is to alert students to potential academic issues in time to take appropriate corrective action.
