Are Georgia Tech OMS CS students eligible to participate?

OMS CS students can take either 3, 6, or 9 hours each semester. Are we eligible to participate in the Alexa Prize competition, assuming all other requirements are met?

At this time, it looks like Georgia Tech defines student status accordingly:

"Students scheduled for at least 12 credit hours in a semester are classified as full-time students; those scheduled for 6-11 hours are classified as part-time students; and those scheduled for 1-5 hours are classified as less-than-part-time students."

Unless there are different terms of enrollment defined for OMS CS students, it looks like Georgia Tech requires 12 credit hours each semester to be considered a full-time student.
