About Enrollment Intensity

Minnesota postsecondary institutions are asked to report the enrollment status of students as defined by their institution. These data are not the same as enrollment intensity for student financial aid eligibility. In the federal student financial aid system, an undergraduate is full time if they enroll for at least 12 credits per semester. In the Minnesota State Grant Program, an undergraduate is full time if they enroll for at least 15 credits per semester.
