Academic Catalog

2023-2024 Edition

Classification of Students

The following system for student classification is used by the university for all students except those enrolled in the standalone Multiple Subject Teaching Credential or those enrolled for preparatory coursework:

Class Credits
Freshman fewer than 28 credits
Sophomore at least 28 credits
Junior at least 60 credits
Senior at least 90 credits

Senior classification does not ensure graduation; all requirements for a degree must be satisfactorily met in order to graduate. Freshmen and sophomores have lower-division standing. Juniors and seniors have upper-division standing. Unless specified otherwise in the course description, upper-division courses are open only to students with sophomore classification or above.
