Studying as a Dependent Spouse

Dependent F-2 spouses may enroll in classes at UW and pursue a degree, but cannot be classified as a full-time student, meaning that undergraduate F-2 spouses can take up to a maximum of 11 credits of coursework per semester, and graduate F-2 spouses can take a maximum of 8 credits.  There is currently no prohibition on J-2 dependents engaging in post-secondary study full-time but a J-2 dependent would be wise to check with International Students and Scholars in advance of enrolling in courses.
