How many units do I have to take to be considered a full-time or part-time student?
For the Fall and Spring semesters, a full-time study load is 12 units. For summer session, a maximum unit load is set for 10 units. A student may not carry more than 18 units during the Fall and Spring semesters without special permission. Student who wish to take 19 to 21 units may see a counselor to apply for excess units. Students who wish to enroll in 21 to 25 units must obtain permission from the Vice President of Student Services. Such permission ordinarily is not given to any student who has not maintained a grade-point average of 3.0 the previous semester.
