Definitions

(From NYS Department of Education Commissioner’s Regulations Subpart 145-2 Educational Requirements for Awards and Loans)

Full-time attendance – full-time study, where required by law, shall mean enrollment for at least 12 semester hours for a semester of not less than 15 weeks, inclusive of examination periods; or eight semester hours a quarter; or, in programs not organized on a semester or quarter basis, 24 semester hours for an academic year of not more than 12 months or the equivalent, as determined by the commissioner. A student shall be considered full-time for a program organized on an academic-year basis only if the student has filed a plan of study with the institution for the entire academic year. Except as otherwise defined in paragraph (4) of this subdivision. Part-time study, for general awards, other than tuition awards for Vietnam veterans and tuition awards for part-time undergraduate students, and for academic performance awards, shall mean enrollment for at least 6, but less than 12, semester hours or the equivalent for a semester of not less than 15 weeks, inclusive of examination periods; or at least four, but less than eight, semester hours a quarter. The definition of the term semester hour shall be that provided in subdivision (o) of section 50.1 of this Title. Independent or individualized study, practice teaching, graduate assistantships, thesis or dissertation research, preparation for language or qualifying examinations, and noncredit or remedial courses, may all be considered as contributing toward full-time or part-time study on an hour-for-hour equivalent basis, if the student effort required is the same as would be required for a credit-bearing course in conformity with subdivision (o) of section 50.1 of this Title, and if required or approved by the school, in a plan of study pre-filed by the student with the school, as an integral part of the student’s program. Credit for independent or individualized study shall be computed in accordance with full-time or part-time requirements. Effective for academic terms beginning after January 1, 1978, a student carrying a full-time program that includes noncredit remedial courses shall carry at least six semester hours a semester, except that in the first semester of study such a student need carry only three semester hours. Effective for academic terms beginning on or after July 1, 1984, a student carrying a part-time program that includes noncredit remedial courses shall carry at least three semester hours a semester. A combination of such credit and remedial work shall equal the minimum student effort requirement for full-time study or part-time study, respectively, in non-remedial programs. However, courses taken solely to meet teacher certification, licensing, or other external requirements, and not recommended or required by the school as an integral part of the student’s program, shall not contribute to full-time or part-time study…

(b) In non-collegiate programs which measure study solely in terms of instructional hours as defined in subdivision (j) of section 126.1 of this Chapter, such as non-degree two-year business programs and non-degree nursing programs, the equivalent of a semester or quarter of full-time study shall require at least 24 instructional hours a week and part-time study shall require at least 12 instructional hours a week.

(c) In schools not organized on a semester or quarter basis, four months of full-time attendance shall be considered the equivalent of a semester.
