Classification of Professional Students

A full-time professional student may be defined as one taking a minimum academic load of 12 units each semester. Azusa Pacific University uses the following system, based on total units earned, for student classification:

Freshman 0-29 units
Sophomore at least 30 units
Junior at least 60 units
Senior at least 90 units

Senior classification does not ensure graduation; all requirements for a degree must be satisfactorily met in order to graduate.

Freshmen and sophomores have lower-division standing, juniors and seniors have upper-division standing.
