- You must be enrolled in 12 units to be considered a full-time student. See possible unit combinations below:
|14 units||Three 4-unit classes + one 2-unit class|
|15 units||Three 5-unit classes|
|16 units||Four 4-unit classes|
|17 units||Three 4-unit classes + one 5-unit class|
- Check prerequisites and verify that courses meet requirements before enrolling in classes.
- Plan to take a variety of courses in both the university core, business core and your major each quarter. As a first-year or sophomore you will rarely be enrolled in more than two business courses.
If a class you want to enroll in is full during the registration period:
- Make sure you enroll in a full schedule during your registration appointment. Don’t assume you’ll be able to fill your schedule during the first week of classes.
- If you make a successful bid to enroll in a class that was full, you can swap classes during the first week of the quarter.
- If you are trying to add a full class that is offered in ACTG, ECON, FNCE, MGMT, MKTG, or OMIS:
- Attend the first class session.
- Do not contact the professor or the department admin.
- Sign up on a Course Enrollment Request form.
- Spaces will be assigned by criteria agreed upon by the department and UGBP (primarily, graduation petition status, number of units completed, and/or major).
- You will be notified about the status of your request prior to the 2nd class meeting.
For information about adding full classes offered by departments in A&S or Engineering, contact the individual departments.
If you would like to overload (more than 19 units), please review the policy and procedure on page 6 of the Deadlines and Registration booklet on the Office of the Registrar site.
You won’t fall behind the expected four-year graduation just because you can’t get into a class that is full. If you think you might, visit an LSB Peer Advisor who can show you how to complete a 4-year course plan. Once you have a course plan, you’ll usually find you have more time than you think to complete a particular course.
