Official Program Limits

Post

The normal unit load is 15 units but students can take up to 18. A student who wishes to register for more than 18 units for fall or spring semester must obtain the approval of the major department chair at registration on a Registration Options form. The maximum for which a student may enroll during the summer term is 10 units.  Additional units in a winter and summer term require the approval of the major department chair on a Registration Options form. Enrollment for approved excess units is permitted beginning the first day of class. Units taken for Credit by Examination do not count toward excess units; however, concurrent enrollment courses, audited courses, and courses in which a student is making up an incomplete grade are all counted as part of the student’s total course load, making them applicable to this regulation.
