Section 4: Study-List Regulations

142. (Resc 1 Jun 00)

145. College of Creative Studies

  1. Approval and Limits

Except as otherwise authorized by the Faculty of the College or by its designated agents, the study-list of each student shall normally consist of four courses totaling at least 15 units per term, or the equivalent, and must be approved by the student's advisor prior to filing with the Registrar.

150. College of Engineering

  1. Approval

    Procedures for approval of study-lists (interpreted as a detailed list of courses required for a degree in a given major) and the assignment of advisors will be determined by the Executive Committee of the College, usually delegated to the dean and/or associate dean (hereinafter, “the associate dean”).

  2. Limits

    Except as otherwise authorized by the associate dean, students shall be limited to a maximum of 18 units in each quarter for courses that can be taken for the letter or the pass/no-pass grading option, regardless of grading choice. This 18-unit limit may be exceeded only by courses that have solely the pass/no-pass grading option.

  3. Minimum Study-Load

    An undergraduate student is required to enroll in a minimum of 12 units each Fall, Winter, and Spring quarter and to maintain the minimum expected cumulative progress toward degree [See SBR 45.A.3]. Study-lists of fewer than 12 units per term must receive the approval of the associate dean. Approval to enroll for fewer than 12 units per term may be withdrawn at any time at the discretion of the associate dean or of the Executive Committee [see Divisional Legislative Ruling 1.93.A, Appendix II].

  4. Student's Responsibility

    The declaration of a major by a student and its acceptance by the College evidences an obligation on the part of the student faithfully to perform the designated work to the best of his or her ability. Withdrawal from, or neglect of, any course entered on the study-list associated with said major, or a change in program without the formal permission of the associate dean of the College, renders the student liable to academic probation, and ultimately enforced withdrawal from the University. (Am 7 Jun 07)

155. College of Letters and Science

  1. Approval
    1. Procedures for approval of study-lists and the assignment of advisors will be determined by the Executive Committee of the College [see Divisional Legislative Ruling 1.93.A, Appendix II].
    2. Each student who has designated his or her major program and has been accepted to pursue it shall register with his or her major department, or with the committee in charge of his or her interdepartmental or individual group major. Students must have been accepted in an approved departmental major or in an interdepartmental or an individual group major no later than the beginning of their junior year.
  2. Limits
    1. Except as otherwise authorized by the Faculty of the College or by its designated agents, the study-list of each student shall normally consist of from 15 to 17 units per term, or the equivalent. In the determination of the study-list unit total, the University of California Entry Level Writing Requirement course will be considered the equivalent of a 4-unit course, and all other courses for which the student does not receive degree credit will be counted at full unit value. Policies governing the limits of study-lists other than normal will be determined by the Executive Committee of the College [see Divisional Legislative Ruling 1.93.A, Appendix II]. (Am 10 May 73; 18 Jan 18)
    2. No more than a total of six units in one-half-unit physical activities courses may be counted toward the degree.
  3. Minimum Study-List

    An undergraduate student is required to enroll in a minimum of 12 units in each Fall, Winter, and Spring quarter and to maintain the minimum cumulative progress toward degree [See SBR 45.A.3.] Study-lists of fewer than 12 units per term must receive the approval of the dean. Approval to enroll for fewer than 12 units per term may be withdrawn at any time at the discretion of the dean or of the Executive Committee [see Divisional Legislative Ruling 1.93.A, Appendix II].

  4. Student's Responsibility

    The presentation of a study-list by a student and its acceptance by the College evidence an obligation on the part of the student faithfully to perform the designated work to the best of his or her ability. Withdrawal from, or neglect of, any course entered on the study-list, or a change in program without the formal permission of the dean of the College, renders the student liable to enforced withdrawal from the University, or other appropriate disciplinary action.
