Part-time Study

Section 145-2.1(a) of the Regulations of the Commissioner of Education defines part-time study for general awards (other than Veterans Tuition Awards and Aid for Part-Time Study) and for academic performance awards (scholarships) as “enrollment for at least 6, but fewer than 12, semester hours or the equivalent for a semester of not less than 15 weeks, inclusive of examination periods; or at least 4, but fewer than 8, semesters hours a quarter.”

For Veterans Tuition Awards and Aid for Part-Time Study, the minimum part-time course load is three semester hours. Three semester hours is also the minimum part-time course load for ADA Part-Time TAP. A student who is receiving aid through one of these programs and is taking remedial courses will have to take at least three semester hours of credit-bearing work in addition to the remedial study to be eligible.
