Financial Aid at Compton College

How many credit hours do I have to take to be considered full-time for financial aid? Part-time?

Enrollment status for the fall, spring and summer semesters is determined by registered total semester credit hours:
  • Full-time: 12 or more credit hours
  • 3/4 time: 9-11 credits per semester
  • 1/2 time: 6-8 credits per semester
  • Less than 1/2 time: 1-5 credits per semester
Students are considered full-time when they are actively enrolled in 12 or more credit hours and half-time when they are actively enrolled in 6 or more credit hours.
