International Student Services
All international students at Champlain College must complete 12 credits every semester to be considered "full time" for immigration purposes. The Assistant Director, International Student Services can make exceptions to the full-time requirement in five unique situations:
If your current situation qualifies you to drop below than full-time enrollment based on one of the five following exceptions, please complete the Champlain College Reduced Course-Load Authorization Form, attach documentation (if necessary), and submit all materials to the Assistant Director, International Student Services.
For academic reasons, you are only allowed 1 (one) reduced course load per degree level. For medical reasons, you are allowed 12 months maximum per degree level.
IMPORTANT NOTE: Your reduced course load paperwork must be approved by the Assistant Director, International Student Services BEFORE you drop below a full-time course load. If you do not complete the Reduced Course Load process before dropping below full-time enrollment, your SEVIS record will be terminated automatically.
