Continuous Enrollment for International Students

To maintain student visa status, U.S. and Canadian immigration laws require international students to be in continuous full-time enrollment. City University of Seattle defines international student full-time status as follows:

  • Undergraduate programs – fifteen (15) credits per term
  • Graduate programs – six (6) credits per term
  • English as a Second Language program – twenty (20) hours per week

Distance learning courses may only contribute to full-time status as defined by U.S./Canadian immigration regulations.
