Course Registration Guidelines & Tips

  • Students are limited to registering for a maximum of 18 units during priority, open registration, and Web registration. Students must have a advisor's approval to register for more than 18 units.

Some courses are graded on a letter-grade-only basis and some are graded on a Pass (P) No Pass (NP) only basis. Other courses offer students an option. To request a P/NP grade, select the "Register P/NP" option when registering for your class via WebAdvisor. If you decide to change you registration from Grade Only to P/NP after registration, you may do so up until 25% of the way through a class. Your decision is final and cannot be changed later.  Changing to P/NP is not allowed after this date. For courses less than a semester in length, check with your instructor or send an email by clicking here: P/NP question.
