Normal progress

You are expected to enroll in a full-time program and make normal progress toward your degree. You must make satisfactory progress by meeting the following conditions:

  • Your semester program must contain at least 12 units of credit in any semester and must include at least two letter graded technical courses (of at least 3 units each, with the exception of Engineering 25, 26 and 27) required for your engineering major. Students who are not in compliance with this policy by the end of the fifth week of the semester are subject to a registration block that will delay enrollment for the following semester. If you complete your major requirements earlier than your final semester, you may take fewer than two technical courses but must continue to meet the minimum 12 unit per term requirement until your final semester. Keep in mind that in order to maintain normal progress for many majors, you will have to complete more than two technical courses toward your major and possibly more than 12 units each semester. Note: Minimum unit requirement for graduation is 120 units.
  • A minimum cumulative GPA of a C average is required for every semester. See Subject to dismissal for further details.
  • All technical courses that fulfill major requirements must be taken for a letter grade.

If you are not making satisfactory progress, you should consult with your Engineering Student Services (ESS) Adviser as soon as possible.
