Undergraduate Studies and Academic Advising

Undergraduate Studies and Academic Advising is a multifaceted service and support unit dedicated to the intellectual and personal growth of undergraduates. Under the leadership of the Interim Vice Provost and Dean for Undergraduate Studies, this unit oversees undergraduate academic programs and initiatives that are not college-specific. Its programs and offices exist to support and enhance the undergraduate academic experience and are designed to help students achieve their goals and excel at all levels.

Students registering for Fall 2014 will be limited to a maximum of 14 units when they first enroll. 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 28th, 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 to the Associate Dean of the college of their major to be reviewed.

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.
