Enrollment Maximums

Ask a complete question, like "How do I obtain my transcripts?"



An undergraduate student's academic standing determines the maximum number of units in which he/she may enroll in a fall or spring term.  Students admitted on academic probation or students with less than a 2.00 cumulative grade point average may enroll for a maximum of 15 units. New freshman with both a high school percentile rank and an ACT or SAT score below the 50 percentile are limited to 15 units. Students with a 2.00 cumulative grade point average or above may register for a maximum of 18 units. Exceptions to the number of units in any of the above circumstances require permission of the dean of the student's major.



The unit (credit) restriction standard is the maximum of one unit (credit) per week for each of the three and six week sessions, with the exception that a student may enroll simultaneously in one three and in one six week course. During the summer term, students are limited to a total of 12 units (credits). Requests for overloads made by undergraduates require approval of the dean of the student's major.
