Verifications of enrollment can be processed only after the College's add/drop period (generally, after the first week of the semester). Verifications are processed in accordance with State University of New York Administrative Policies and Procedures governing the definitions of enrollment status. A student achieves full time status with a course load at SUNY Old Westbury of 12 or more credits. Students enrolled for up to 11 credits are considered part time. (For financial aid purposes, enrollment of 1-5 credits is deemed less than part time.)
