Note: Part-Time Status for F-1 Students
Otis College cannot issue an I-20 for part-time students. Embassies and Consulate will not issue a student visa for part-time studies. Minimum of 12 credits, full-time enrollment is required for I-20 and visa issuance.
Please Note: Students who change their major, class level, or are enrolled part-time are at risk of not completing all degree requirements in time for graduation. If a student is requesting a different class standing or major, a review of transcripts by the Liberal Arts and Sciences department and the relevant studio department may be necessary to assess transferable credits. A portfolio review by the studio department may also be required to evaluate preparedness for advanced class standing or entrance to the new major.
This can impact a students ability to participate in the commencement ceremony along with their graduating class and/or students might also be required to come back for an additional semester and/or year in order to complete all degree requirements.
Contact Academic Advising at firstname.lastname@example.org to discuss changes to degree progress and timeline for degree completion or if you plan to change your major from when you last attended.
