Workshops – 16 to Finish

Take 16 units (we call them “semester hours”) per semester to graduate within 4 years!
Consider your enrollment options:
Option 1 (32-36 units)

Fall: 16-18 units

Spring: 16-18 units

*

Option 2 (32-41 units)

Fall: 16-18 units

January Interterm: Up to 5 units

Spring: 16-18 units

Why 16 units per semester?
  • It’s easy math: 128 minimum units needed to earn a degree =  32 units x 4 years = 16 units per semester.
  • Save time and money.  Graduate on time.  Maximize your enrollment options up to 18 units.
The Savings are in the Details!
  • Whether you enroll in 12 units or 18 units, you are paying exactly the same flat rate tuition.  The savings are in the details based on flat tuition per semester for 12-18 credits (excluding January Interterm):
    • Enrolling in 12 units would cost more on a per-unit basis.
    • Increasing your units from 12 to 16 saves you 25% on a per-unit cost.
    • Increasing your units from 16 to 18 saves you 11% on a per-unit cost.
    • Increasing your units from 12 to 18 saves you 33% on a per-unit cost.
  • If you include January Interterm in your spring semester plans then the savings really show!
    • Enrolling in 12 units, excluding January Interterm would cost more on a per-unit basis.
    • Increasing your units from 12 to 18, including up to 5 in Jan-Term saves you 48% on a per-unit cost.
    • Increasing your units from 12 to 16, including up to 5 in Jan-Term saves you 43% on a per-unit cost.
    • Keeping 12 units in spring but enrolling in up to 5 units in Jan-Term saves you 29% on a per-unit cost.
There are other perks!
  • Take advantage of priority registration to get desired or required courses.
    • Seniors get 2 priority days ahead of the juniors; 7 days ahead of the sophomores; 9 days ahead of the freshmen.
    • Juniors get 5 priority days ahead of the sophomores; 7 days ahead of the freshmen.
    • Sophomores get 2 priority days ahead of the freshmen.
