International Students use this from to request approval to take a reduced course load (RCL) for one semester. A student must receive approval for the reduced course load
before they actually drop below full time. Dropping below full time in a required semester without prior approval will result in SEVIS termination.
Students should have met with both ISO and their advisor before completing this form.
When submitting this form, you must list your advisor's e-mail as the reviewer. Once your advisor has approved your form, allow a minimum of 7 working days for a response to your request. All requests for RCL must be approved before the student drops below
full time. Students should meet with International Student & Scholar Services and their academic advisor before completing this form.
