11.15.1 Full-Time Course Load

Approved by Academic Council on April 26, 2001

Twelve units constitute a minimum full-time program of studies during a semester for the regular undergraduate and first professional level student and is the minimum required for participation in intercollegiate activities. If a student registers for less than 12 units or drops below 12 units, financial aid may be reduced. Students who are less than half-time, 6 units, are not eligible for financial aid.

The maximum study load during a semester for undergraduates without special permission is 18 units and 19 units for first professional level students. Students who wish to enroll for units in excess of the maximum study load must petition their school or college and receive approval in advance. Approval is based to a great extent upon the student’s past academic record and will result in additional tuition charges.
