Immigration Tip
Credit/No Credit Deadline on November 30

Although the deadline for withdrawing from courses has passed, students may still change their courses to “credit/no credit” up through November 30. Changing a course to credit/no credit is not the same as dropping the course. You will remain enrolled in the course and will either earn credit for it or not, depending on your performance in the course. Therefore, taking a course for credit/no credit does not impact your legal status. As long as you are still enrolled full-time (12 credits for undergraduates or 9 credits for graduate students), you will maintain legal status. Review the One Stop website for answers to all of your frequently asked questions about credit/no credit, and talk to your academic advisor if you still have remaining questions.
