SFRA informs students of the financial responsibilities associated with enrolling in courses and explains the possible consequences that may result if a student does not comply with these obligations. Adjustments for reduced loads are only made if the undergraduate petition for reduce Load is approved by the academic department and the university registration office, usually only within the last semester. International students who wish to move below 12 credits during the semester must obtain permission from the Office of Global Services (OGS). These students may be approved for a reduced course load of less than 12 credits, but not less than 6 credits in accordance with federal rules. .
