Students are categorized by class according to the number of credits they have earned. Credits not completed or completed unsuccessfully do not count toward the number of credits required for class standing. The number of credits necessary for each level is:
- First year: 0-29 credits earned;
- Second year: 30-59 credits earned;
- Third year: 60-89 credits earned;
- Fourth year: 90 or more credits earned.
Note that Academic Level is used primarily by Student Financial Services; the College tracks students by Academic Year.
