Normal Course Load & Full-Time Status

Regulation type
Section 2: Student Status

At Royal Roads University, a normal full course load is 30 credits per year at the undergraduate level and 15 credits per year at the graduate level. Exceptions may be approved by the Vice-President (Academic) for specified years within specified programs. A student enrolled in at least 60% of a normal full course load is considered full-time. Furthermore, a graduate-level student formally enrolled in a program requirement for graduate-level research and/or a capstone course or activity is considered full-time whether this enrolment falls within the normal prescribed timeframe or a formally approved extension period.
