Part-time Degree Status

POLICY

Graduating seniors who need fewer than 3.0 course credits to graduate may request permission to study on a part-time basis in their last semester of enrollment.  To do so, present your request to your academic dean as soon as you know that you want to be enrolled part-time but no later than the last business day before the first day of classes of your last semester of enrollment.  

As a part-time student, you may enroll in no less than one (1.0), and no more than two-and-a-half (2.5) course credits. 

Note:  as a part-time student you may be denied University housing, and there could be financial aid implications.  Discuss your eligibility for housing with Residence Life Housing Services and the financial aid implications with your financial aid officer.  To discuss your eligibility for part-time status, confer with your academic dean. 

 

PROCEDURE

To apply for part-time status in your last semester at Duke, contact your academic dean for a form and submit the form no later than the last business day before the first day of classes of your last semester of undergraduate enrollment.
