Students registering for Fall 2013 will be limited to a maximum of 14 units when they first enroll this spring. This initial limit will not affect students with financial aid disbursements, regardless of the number of units for which financial aid students initially enroll.
Beginning July 29th, we will open registration again and allow students to add additional units. All students will be limited to a maximum of 18 units for the Fall semester.
Graduating students who need to take more than 18 units in order to complete their degrees should submit a Petition for Exception to Policy on Maximum Unit Load form. Requests will be reviewed and students notified about the decision in Decmeber.
Students should prioritize their classes carefully for the initial registration appointment, ensuring that they get into the high-demand courses that they need to graduate first.
