Undergraduate students are considered full-time when they register in nine units or more per term for the fall and winter terms, and six units or more during the spring/summer terms. Students are considered part-time when they register in fewer than nine units per term for the fall and winter terms, and three units during the spring/summer terms. The exception is students who have an approved accommodation for a reduced course load.
Students who would like to pursue their studies on a part-time basis should consult with the faculty advising office as special permission may be required. Faculties that allow part-time studies without prior approval include the Faculties of Arts and Kinesiology.
Graduate students should consult section D.3.2 (b) of the Graduate Calendar.
