Reduced Courseload

Page address: http://www.mnsu.edu/access/reducedcourseload.html

Under the Americans with Disabilities Act of 1990 and Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973, it may be considered reasonable accommodation for students with disabiliites to enroll in a less than full-time courseload (9-12 credits) as an academic adjustment and still be considreed full time.  Students are encouraged to discuss full-time courseload requirements with an academic advisor from their respective program.  A financial aid counselor can determine how their aid will be affected by a reduced courseload.  Finally, the student should discuss this need with staff in Accessibility Resources and if appropriate, Accessibility Resources will communicate to the Office of the Registrar a student's eligibility for reduced courseload.
