Students who are registered for either one or two courses as of Friday of third week are part-time students. Since registrations are self-managed, no special notification is sent to these part-time students.
At the end of third week, the Registrar reports the registration status of every student in the University to the National Student Clearing House. These data are subsequently used by various agencies to verify eligibility for financial aid, student loan deferments, etc. Therefore it is critical that the Clearing House receive accurate data. To ensure that your status is reported correctly, you should check your registration at the end of third week through the cMore academic portal. Students who are required to remain full time for visa or financial aid eligibility risk serious consequences due to incorrect enrollment status.
If you want to switch from full-time to part-time status you need to meet with your College adviser before Friday of first week to discuss the effect on your degree program. Part-time students may continue to add and drop courses through the end of third week, but if you register for three courses at any point in time through Friday of third week, you will automatically revert to full-time status (without notification).
There is no formal process to switch to full-time status. Simply register for three or four classes.
To confirm enrollment as a University of Chicago student for insurance or other purposes, contact the National Student Clearinghouse. Students who encounter problems with this procedure should contact the Office of the University Registrar at 773-702-7891.
Make an appointment with your adviser at the reception desk (Harper, 2nd Floor) or by calling 773-702-8615. You can reach the Adviser-on Call for urgent issues at this number too.
