Classification of Student Load
Students are defined as full-time when enrolled in 12 or more units in either the Fall or Spring semesters. A part-time student is one who is enrolled in fewer than 12 units in either the Fall or Spring semesters. During the summer session, a full-time student is enrolled in 6 or more units and a part-time student is enrolled in fewer than 6 units. (Please note that for financial aid purposes, 12 units is considered full-time during the summer session, as well). An overload of units requires a counselor’s signature for registration. Overloads are considered to be anything over 18 units for the Fall or Spring semesters and anything over 8 units for the Summer term.
