Enrollment Verification

Northeastern utilizes the National Student Clearinghouse for the majority of student enrollment verification requests.  For enrollment verification requests that cannot be handled by the National Student Clearinghouse, the Registrar Services Office is the only University office authorized to release externally a student's enrollment status.

When verifying enrollment for purposes of loan deferment, Social Security eligibility, etc., Northeastern reports enrollment status in the following manner: 

Enrolled Hours: Fall and Spring Semesters

Undergraduate
Full-time: 12+
3-quarter-time: 9 to 11.99
Half-time: 6 to 8.99
Less-than-half-time: .5 to 5.99

Graduate
Full-time: 9+
3-quarter-time: 7 to 8.99
