    It would be very helpful if you could submit two requests:

    2) A technical support request regarding the problem you are having with submitting requests via the online form. Please include screenshots of the data you have entered and the errors you are receiving. This request will be routed to the people responsible for maintaining the online forms.

    Thanks, and we are very sorry for the inconvenience.

    Hello Manjari,

    Some of our websites do not behave well in Internet Explorer. We recommend that you use either Chrome or Firefox for our websites.

    If you are using one of those browsers and you are still having this problem, please try reloading the page. Sometimes the payment process is slow but will work OK if you try reloading the page. Please try again.

    I had raised a Support ticket for Reduced Course load (RCL) around three weeks ago. The original request for RCL was converted as a support ticket for Petition to graduate and the support desk created a separate RCL ticket for me( #18321).

    However it has been almost two weeks since this and there is no update on the ticket.On calling ITU I was told that the International student office would be handling this. The registrations for courses started today and since My RCL request still doesn't have any updates I registered for 9 credits.

    I am writing this down over here because there are other people like me who are in the same situation. It would be great if someone told us what we are supposed to do?
    Should we register for 9 credits so that we are not out of status or should we register for only as many credits as are needed for our graduation?

    Thank you

    Thank you for the reply. It is helpful to me.
    I have a new question now.
    Recent, I just signed contract of US Army and they asked me to join Military Basic Training in September 12th 2016, so I cannot join this Fall Semester probably.
    If I go to Military Basic Training, what should I do or talk with ITU before that?
    Thank you so much and I look forward to your reply.
