Load Status classifies students based on their attempted unit load for a particular term. "Full Load" is assigned to undergraduate students with 15+ units attempted and graduate students with 12+ units attempted. "Full-Time (less than Full Load)" is assigned to undergraduate students with 12-14.99 units attempted and graduate students with 9-11.99 units attempted. "Half-Time" is assigned to undergraduate students with 6-11.99 units attempted and graduate students with 5-8.99 units attempted. "Less than Half Time" is assigned to undergraduate students with less than 6 units attempted and graduate students with less than 5 units attempted.

Load Statuses for undergraduate and graduate students include:
- Full Load
- Full-Time (less than Full Load)
- Less than Half Time
- Not Enrolled
"Unit loads were calculated by summing Term Units Attempted (pre-collegiate + lower division + upper division). In any given term, a until load below 12 placed students in the "part-time" category, unit loads of 12 to 14 per term, placed students in the "full-time" category, and unit loads of 15 or higher placed students in the "full-load" category. Total counts of undergraduate students in each category were divided by the total number of undergraduate students to determine the percent of students in any given term who were in each of these three categories."
