In order to meet the graduation requirements in four semesters, students should carry an average of 15 units each semester. Students will ordinarily not be allowed to register for more than 18 units.
When individual circumstances may require additional unit demand, an overload program in excess of 18 units may be approved for students who have maintained a B average or have satisfactory test scores on SCAT, SAT, ACT, or other similar measures that predict success, including the counselor’s assessment of the difficulty of the program. Approval for such overloads may be secured from college counselors or the Dean of Counseling.
A summer session load should not exceed the equivalent of one unit per week or approximately nine units for an 8-week session. If over 9 units for summer or over 6 units for intersession, an overload petition is required.
