Full- and Part-Time Enrollment

A student’s enrollment status is based on the number of credit hours in which he or she is enrolled.

To be classified as a full-time student, a student must be enrolled in a minimum of 12 hours during a 16-week semester. Nine to 11 hours designates three-fourths time, and six to eight hours designates half-time enrollment during a 16-week semester.

For the summer term, the minimum enrollments are six hours to be considered full-time, five hours to be three-fourths time and three hours to be half-time. For summer, the student’s credit hours are added together for an enrollment total including both summer sessions.

Students should consult a KCC advisor regarding individual circumstances.

Many students find it advantageous to enroll full-time. Medical insurance programs, auto insurance programs and student financial aid often provide advantages to full-time students.
