When a course is repeated, the units are credited toward the degree only once. A student’s grade point average is computed quarterly and cumulatively on the total number of units attempted and completed (successfully or unsuccessfully).


Dentistry, Medicine, and Pharmacy students must be enrolled full time.


Graduate Division and Nursing students who meet certain criteria may apply for part-time status.


A registered student who withdraws, is dismissed, or is absent without leave from the University before the end of the term may receive a grade of F or NP for each course in which he/she is enrolled.
