An undergraduate student must take 12 semester hours during a regular semester in order to be classified as full-time. A graduate student must take 9 semester hours during a regular semester in order to be classified as full-time.
All students enrolled during the current term and classified as degree-seeking. This includes graduate students, undergraduate students, and "special students" officially recognized as seeking teacher certification.
Students not enrolled during the current term must be formally re-admitted to the University before having access to registration. To be re-admitted, undergraduates must contact the dean's office of the college to which they were assigned when last enrolled; graduate students and special students seeking teacher certification must contact the Registrar's Office. To be re-admitted for summer registration undergraduates must contact the Office of Summer Sessions; graduate students and special students seeking teacher certification must contact the Registrar's Office.
Initial access to the registration system is based on the student's classification and hours earned to date. Seniors and graduate students will be assigned the earliest access times. Once initial access is given, it will continue through the early registration period.
Non-degree seeking students may participate in early registration for Summer terms. Initial access to the registration system will be available towards the end of the early registration period. Non-degree seeking students may not participate in early registration for the Spring and Fall semesters.

The Registration Status link on the Student Services page in AppalNet informs the student of various items that affect his or her registration, including required registration status and any holds that would prevent registration.
