Concurrent Enrollment/Distance Learning


Concurrent Enrollment

An F-1 student may be enrolled in two different SEVIS approved schools at one time as long as the combined enrollment amounts to a full time course of study and the enrollment has been approved by the University of Kentucky International Center.

You may enroll at another academic institution for an unlimited number of credit hours during break periods, as long as it is not your first or final semester. 

Online courses

For F-1 students enrolled in classes for credit or classroom hours, no more than the equivalent of one class or three credits per session, term, semester, trimester, or quarter may be counted toward the full course of study requirement if the class is taken on-line or through distance education and does not require the student's physical attendance for classes, examination or other purposes integral to completion of the class.

If the F-1 student's course of study is in a language study program, no on-line or distance education classes may be considered to count toward a student's full course of study requirement.
