Undergraduate students are classified by the number of semester hours completed at the beginning of each semester. A student with:

  • Fewer than 30 credit hours completed is classified as a freshman.
  • Fewer than 60 but at least 30 credit hours completed is classified as a sophomore.
  • Fewer than 90 but at least 60 credit hours completed is classified as a junior.
  • At least 90 credit hours completed is classified as a senior.


A student who has completed a bachelor's degree and enrolls only for undergraduate credit will be classified as a senior.
