Classification of Students

The following classifications became effective for fall 1996 and thereafter for newly admitted undergraduates (transfer students and freshmen).

Undergraduate students are classified as freshmen, sophomores, juniors, and seniors. These classifications are determined by the number of credit hours completed (including hours transferred from another institution). The classifications are as follows:

Classification Semester Hours
Freshman 0–29.9 credits completed
Sophomore 30–59.9 credits completed
Junior 60–89.9 credits completed
Senior 90 or more credits completed
