  • You can easily spot The Little Friends of Printmaking in a crowd—their inky hands and clothes are a dead giveaway. Their work is just as distinctive. JW & Melissa Buchanan first made a name for themselves through their silkscreened concert posters, but soon branched out into further fields, designing fancy junk for whoever would pay them money. In addition to their work as illustrators and designers, they've continued their fine art pursuits through exhibitions, lectures, and artists’ residencies, spreading the gospel of silkscreen to anyone inclined to listen.

Approval to Attend Part Time

Overview

Are you thinking of dropping a course, withdrawing from the semester, applying for a hardship withdrawal for the current or a past semester? First consider the following questions:

  • Will you be registered full-time or part-time after dropping the class?
  • If you would be part-time, does your F-1 status allow this? (See below for exceptions to the full-time registration requirement.)
  • What are the Registration Office’s drop deadlines?
  • Graduate students, how will being on leave affect your F-1 status?

In general, international students must be registered full-time. This is defined as 12 or more credits each semester for undergraduate students and 10 or more credits each semester for graduate students. Only one online class may count towards the minimum credit amount.

Reasons for attending part - time include 1) Documented medical issues; 2) Language difficulties in the first year of study supported by the LAS department; 3) In the final semester of study when one has below full-time units left to complete degree.

 

Application Procedure

You must receive approval from your Department and a Designated School Official (DSO) before dropping below a full course of study. Failure to do so may result in a termination of your immigration status. The Registrar Office will process Approval to Attend Part – Time (AAP) forms each semester during SEVIS registration.

 

Step 1: Obtain an Approval to Attend Part – Time form from the Registration Office.

Step 2: Complete and submit the Approval to Attend Part – Time form to the Registration Office.
