Arizona State University is frequently asked to certify a student's degrees earned and/or enrollment as to full-time, part-time, etc. Enrollment status is determined by the number of credits for which a student is enrolled during the term in which certification is requested. Courses a student has withdrawn from are not included. Note that classes taken for audit are included in total enrolled hours.
