Reduced Course Load
Students must get authorization from ISS prior to the beginning of each semester to be enrolled less than full-time. Students who are enrolled for less than full-time without authorization will be in jeopardy of losing their F-1 student status.
(Note: the reasons listed are not a guarantee for approval of part-time enrollment):
