Tuition Terminology Basics

We put together a quick guide to some common terms you’ll see when going through the tuition payment process.

  • Full Time: Undergraduate students registered for 12 or more credits are considered full time. Graduate and Professional students are considered full time when registered for 9 or more credits.
  • Half Time: Undergraduate students registered for 6-11 credits are considered half time. Graduate and Professional students are considered half time when registered for 4.5 to 8.5 credits.
  • Credit or Unit: Each course is measured in credits or units. Both terms may be used, but mean the same thing.
  • Add/Drop Period: Every program has an add/drop period during which your bill will be adjusted based on changing your course load. You can check the academic calendar for the add/drop period for your specific program.
  • Withdrawal: If your program’s drop/add period has passed, you can use Albert to withdraw from a single class by selecting "Request Class Withdrawal" or from all of the classes in a term by selecting "Request Term/Total Withdrawal."
