- Automotive insurance - if you receive discounts for being a full-time student.
- Health insurance - if you need to be a full-time student to be covered on a parent's policy.
- Your athletic eligibility - If you are a varsity athlete, you must see your athletic advisor first, to obtain permission, before taking a signed form to your academic advisor.
