For Current TAs and RAs

When you are a teaching or research assistant, you should register for between 5 and 7 credits of classes. If you have no past or current financial aid considerations this is all you need to do. If you are seeking deferment from past financial aid obligations or seeking current aid (i.e., obtaining a current loan) as a full-time student then you will need to contact since your teaching or research assistantship will provide the needed credits to be classified as a full-time student.
