Course Extensions

Course extensions (including culminating project extensions and thesis extensions) are not considered a part of “hours enrolled” for purposes of this policy and are therefore less than half time. For purposes of a Missouri Student Grant, students must be enrolled in nine hours in the quarter system both at the time the funds are requested and at the time the funds are received. A minimum of 128 semester hours is necessary to complete a bachelor’s degree. Missouri students expecting to qualify for Missouri State Grant funds are required by the state to be enrolled in a minimum of nine hours per quarter.
