- Spring/Fall semesters: Students are allowed to enroll up to 18 credits. Overload permission is required for up to 3 additional units for a total of 21 units.
- Summer sessions: Students are allowed to enroll 2 courses in summer session I and 2 courses in summer session II/III. Overload permission is required for a third course in one session for a maximum of five courses for the whole summer. Note: A summer session III course counts as a summer session II course.
