University of Calgary Calendar 2018-2019 Admissions A.1 Classification of Students A.1.1 Undergraduate Students
A.1.1 Undergraduate Students

Undergraduate students are students who have fulfilled admission requirements and are registered in courses for credit towards an undergraduate degree, diploma or certificate. Visiting students, visiting student researchers and Open Studies students are considered undergraduate students.

Undergraduate students fall into two categories:

(a) Full-time students: Those students who are registered in the equivalent of nine or more units each term;

(b) Part-time students: Those students who are registered in fewer than nine units each term.
Undergraduate students, or students in programs identified with undergraduate faculties, are classified as follows:

1. Regular Student: A student who has been formally admitted to study in the University and is registered in a program leading to a degree, diploma or certificate (credit).

2. Open Studies Student: A student who is permitted to register in credit courses, but who is not admitted to a program leading to a degree, diploma or certificate (credit). For more information, refer to A.14 Admission to Open Studies.

3. Visiting Student/Visiting Student Researcher: A student who is permitted to register in credit-based courses who is registered at another recognized/accredited degree granting institution and has obtained a letter of permission to take courses at the University of Calgary toward their home institution credential or to complete research at the University of Calgary toward their home institution credential.

4. Exchange Student: A student who is permitted to register in credit courses at the University of Calgary as part of a formal exchange agreement.
