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 Approval to enroll for fewer than 12 units per term may be withdrawn at any time at the discretion of the dean or of the Executive Committee [see Divisional Legislative Ruling 1.93.A, Appendix II].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.
