Class Standing

For Registration

Your class standing for the purpose of establishing your registration appointment time is determined differently than your class standing for progress toward degree. For information on how appointment times are scheduled, visit the Registrar’s Office webpage at http://www.registrar.northwestern.edu/registration/appointment_times.html.

For Progress Toward Degree

For some other purposes at the University, the number of credits that you have earned determines your class standing.  AP credits are included in this calculation.

            Senior – has completed at least 33 quarter courses

            Junior – has completed at least 22 but less than 33 quarter courses

            Sophomore – has completed at least 11 but less than 22 quarter courses

            First Year – has completed less than 11 quarter courses

See your advisor with specific questions about your class standing.
