Class Enrollment at EMU

 

Registration Requirements

Students are required to enroll full-time in classes each fall and winter term.
  • 12 credits minimum for undergraduate students
  • 8 credits minimum for graduate students
  • Graduate Assistants are also required to enroll in at least 8 credits

 If your first semester at EMU is summer, you are also required to enroll in at least 8 credits

You are only allowed to take 1 online class per your minimum enrollment requirements above. If you are only enrolled in 1 class (for example, in your final term), this class cannot be taken online. You cannot take just online classes (unless it is summer and summer is not your first or last term).

If you are unable to be enrolled full-time for academic difficulties, medical concerns, or if it is your last term because you are graduating, you are required to complete and submit a Reduced Hours Form. See http://www.emich.edu/oiss/forms.html under "Immigration" for the Reduced Hours Forms.

If you are under enrolled without permission via the Reduced Hours Form, your SEVIS record will be terminated.

We highly recommend that you review the deadlines for dropping classes with a refund or withdrawal grade before submitting a Reduced Hours Form. Please see the Office of Records and Registration for more details at :

Most courses and programs are held on main campus. However, sometimes a course is offered at a different location. When you are signing up for classes, make sure each one is located on Main Campus. If you do decide to take a class off campus, you are responsible for your own transportation.
