Students admitted to FIU with less than 60 credits may request a waiver for the summer enrollment requirement due to unusual hardship. Although a waiver is allowed, students are encouraged to enroll in summer courses to ensure timely degree completion.

Regulation 6.016: Summer Session Enrollment

“All students entering a university in the State University System with fewer than 60 semester hours credit shall be required to earn at least 9 semester hours prior to graduation by attendance at one or more summer sessions. University presidents or their designees may waive the application of this regulation in cases of unusual hardship to the individual.”
