1. Is the Associate in Science in Nursing Program full-time or part-time?

    In the first semester of the Generic Option, a student is enrolled in 12 credit hours; this is considered full-time college attendance. All other semesters in both the Generic Option and the Transition Option are less than 12 credit hours and are thus considered part-time attendance (i.e., unless the student is enrolled in other classes). The clinical component of each Nursing Program course requires three hours of contact per credit hour, resulting in an obligation of at least 17 hours per week within the classroom or through clinical obligations. These additional hours do not qualify a student for full-time enrollment for financial aid or other opportunities in which full-time enrollment is determined based on the number of credit hours within the semester.
