Definition of Unit Overload
- Unit Overload
- More than 17.5 units in either fall or spring semester or more than 8.5 units in a Summer term.
Students requesting an overload must have a cumulative grade point average of a 3.2 or higher, and must have completed at least 15 units of college or university course work after graduation from high school.
Student enrollment history will also be considered. For example, students who have withdrawn from several classes, especially during semesters in which previous overloads have been granted, may be denied permission to enroll in an overload for the following semester.
