Unit Load Limitations

A normal class load for a full-time student for fall and spring semesters is between 12-19 units. For summer session a full time load is considered to be 6 units. Students are not permitted to take more than 19 units during fall and spring semesters or more than 11 units during the summer session without approval from a College of San Mateo counselor. To request approval, students follow the directions on the Petitions to Enroll in Beyond the Maximum Units available at collegeofsanmateo.edu/forms. A program of 12 units or more during fall and spring terms is considered a full-time load for athletic eligibility, financial aid, international students with V-1 visa, veterans benefits, social security benefits, and most other benefits which are dependent upon student enrollment status.
