II. As an F-1/J-1 visa holder, I am required to successfully complete a full course load each semester that I am a student (undergraduate-12 hours; graduate-9 hours). U.S. Immigration Service does not require me to attend the summer session (June-July) unless it is my first semester with ECU. I am responsible for reviewing the online course policy as listed on the ISPS Maintaining Immigration Status
webpage. I understand that if I am transferring to ECU, from an approved F-1 school, that I must start my courses within 5 months of my last F-1 status end date (i.e., program end date or OPT) or the next available semester, whichever comes first.
