Enrolling in More Than 19 Credits

All full-time undergraduates may enroll for up to 19 credits per term.  Undergraduates with a cumulative UCSC GPA greater than or equal to 2.5 may enroll in up to 22 credits beginning the first day of instruction.

Students who do not have a UCSC GPA of 2.5 or higher may only enroll in more than 19 credits with the approval of their college.  Taking more than 22 credits, even with a GPA above 2.5, also requires college approval.  Check your college's website and/or contact your college advising office to find out how to petition to take more than the usual course load.

No undergraduate may enroll in more than 19 credits until the first day of instruction, even with college approval.
