1- Freshman
2- Sophomore
3- Junior
4- Senior
5- Graduate
Average course is 3 credit hours. You would spend, on average, three hours per week in that class.
Average semester load is 15 hours (5 classes at 3 credit hours each) 120 hours- minimum number of hours for a Bachelor's Degree
You are considered a full time student when you are enrolled in 12 or more semester hours.
To be eligible for financial aid you must be enrolled in 6 hours.
For grants and scholarships you must be full time.
Freshman: 1-29
Sophomore: 30-59
Junior: 60-89
Senior: 90+
Dropping: Students can drop all but one hour of coursework to still be enrolled.
The deadlines are:
Full refund - January 29
Drop deadline (no refund) - March 20
Withdrawing: Withdrawing is reducing your hours to zero for the current semester. It only affects the current semester, not any future semester for which you are enrolled.
Students who want to add a course must do so by the 12th class day.
At the end of a semester, if your Texas State GPA is below a 2.0, the university places you on Academic Probation for one long semester.
Academic Suspension
If, while on probation, you fail to raise your Texas State GPA then you are placed on Academic Suspension for one long semester.

After this period, you will be re-instated to Texas State on Academic Probation and must then raise your GPA during the probationary semester.
During this time you may take a regular course load, but your Texas State GPA must be raised in order to remain at Texas State.
I - Incomplete
W - Withdrawn Passing
P - Course in Progress
CR - Credit
Course Repeat: You will be charged an additional fee for courses that you attempt more than twice at any Texas public institution (includes drops with "W").
Excess Hours Fee: You will be charged out-of-state tuition per credit hour if you exceed 30 hours in courses which do not apply to your degree requirements.
6 Drop Policy: You will not be permitted to drop more than 6 courses during your undergraduate career without "good cause."
