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 semester hours completed (including hours transferred from another institution). The classifications are as follows:

Freshman 0–29.9 semester hours completed
Sophomore 30–59.9 semester hours completed
Junior 60–89.9 semester hours completed
Senior 90 or more semester hours completed
