Cumulative GPA requirements
You must have a cumulative GPA of at least 2.0.
Minimum pace required to complete a degree within the maximum time frame
You are expected to earn a minimum of 36 credits per year or an average of 12 credits per quarter if you are full time. You are expected to pass 80% of credits attempted if you are part time.
Maximum time frame for degree completion
You are eligible for 15 quarters of aid without taking into account transfer credits. If you have credits accepted for transfer to UCSC and/or if you enroll in summer, the maximum number of quarters of aid eligibility is prorated.
