Continuing Students: Fall Registration Week
THIS MESSAGE IS FOR CONTINUING STUDENTS. IF YOU ARE GRADUATING IN MAY, YOU MAY DISREGARD THIS MESSAGE.
Dear International Students,
This reminder is for international students who will register for Fall 2008 during course registration beginning the week of April 21st. In order to maintain your F1 or J1 status, you must register for at least 36 units unless you are eligible and receive OIE authorization for a reduced course load for the fall semester.
If your program requires summer enrollment, you must register for at least 36 units or request a reduced course load authorization for the summer semester. Students who plan to graduate in August and will register for less than 36 units must also request a reduced course load authorization for the summer semester. Summer registration will begin April 14th.
To request a reduced course load authorization, please return a completed form <www.studentaffairs.cmu.edu/oie/forstu/pdf/reduced.pdf> prior to the end of the add drop period (Sept. 08, 2008 for fall; May 28, 2008 for summer).
If you have questions about your eligibility for a reduced course load, please make an appointment with your foreign student advisor by calling 412-268-5231.
If you need to drop below full-time after the start of the semester, you must return this form to OIE before dropping courses in order to maintain your status.
