Academic Classifications

Undergraduate students’ academic classification is based strictly on earned credit hours. If you are a current student, the best way to find your earned hours is on your unofficial transcript. Please do not refer to the 'credits applied' on your degree audit when determining academic classification.

Beginning fall 2018, the table below reflects the required number of earned credit hours for each designated academic classification.

      Credits Earned

        Academic Classification


 0 - 14  First Semester Freshman 4A
 15 - 29  Second Semester Freshman 4B
 30 - 44  First Semester Sophomore 3A
 45 - 59  Second Semester Sophomore 3B
 60 - 74  First Semester Junior 2A
 75 - 89  Second Semester Junior 2B
 90 - 104  First Semester Senior 1A
 105 and above  Second Semester Senior 1B

Academic classification is used by the Office of Financial Aid to determine loan eligibility.  For cadets, the Commandant’s Office also uses academic classification to determine room assignments, the appropriate class numeral, class privileges, and eligibility to hold cadet rank.
