Maximum Unit Load
Regular students are restricted each semester to a maximum load of 18 units during a regular semester, 10 units during the summer, and 7 units January intersession.
Students who wish to take more than the maximum load in the Fall and Spring terms must complete an Excess Units Petition and obtain approval from a counselor (note: summer has a maximum load of 10 units and January intersessions have a maximum load of 7 units and is non-negotiable). Students need to bring the completed and signed excess units petition to Admissions & Records in order to register for additional courses.
Concurrently enrolled high school students are restricted to 11 units, but are strongly recommended to enroll in no more than six units of coursework at any given time. If you are permitted to enroll in 12 or more units, you will be responsible for paying full fees as a regular student.
