A full student program consists of 12 to 18 semester units. Most full-time students will enroll for an average of 15 units each semester in order to complete a 60-unit degree program in the recommended four-semester sequence. Students desiring to enroll in more than 18 units must obtain approval from a counselor.
A student is expected to spend two hours in preparation for each hour of class lecture or recitation. If students enroll for 12 units, they should plan to spend at least 24 hours a week for class preparation.
