Yes, but the student is still required to attend an orientation and complete all the required paperwork prior to receiving an add code to enroll. Once officially enrolled, the student can start counting the hours toward the minimum required hours. (Note: any hours completed prior to enrollment will not be counted.)
Students have the entire semester/term to complete the minimum required hours that they signed up for. It is acceptable for the student to complete all the minimum hours before the semester/term ends. However, any additional hours completed beyond the minimum required hours does not change the chosen credit/unit the student originally signed up for.
