Candidates for a degree must ordinarily be in residence for the two semesters immediately preceding commencement. "In residence" is defined as enrollment as a full-time student at CSB/SJU with a minimum of 12 semester credits. Students may be enrolled in part-time status (less than 12 credits) in their final semester at CSB/SJU if all outstanding degree requirements are to be met with the part-time enrollment.  Students planning to be part-time in their final semester cannot also be concurrently enrolled in courses at other colleges or through on-line/distance-learning programs.
