To be considered a full-time student, you must carry a minimum of twelve (12) units. Regular full-time students are restricted to a maximum of eighteen (18) units each semester. During the summer session, students are restricted to one (1) unit for each week of instruction. For example, in the six-week session, you may carry up to six (6) units. If a student wishes an overload, that is, units in excess of the maximum, he/she must receive approval from a college counselor prior to registering for classes. Contact the Counseling Center for exceptions to this policy.
