The Representative Assembly approved a proposal from the Educational Policy Committee to amend San Diego Senate Regulation 600, Campuswide Graduation Requirements, at its June 5, 2018 meeting. The amendments establish quarter limits of 12 quarters for all undergraduate students entering as freshmen and 6 quarters for students entering as transfer students starting in Fall Quarter 2019. The policy changes provide flexible provisions to extend enrollment beyond these quarter limits for students who need additional time. Extensions will be granted by the colleges for all students with valid reasons who submit a plan to complete their degree requirements.
The proposed amendments were developed following a recommendation from the college provosts and will replace the current maximum unit policy. The approved changes will better support students and keep them on track toward timely graduation by aligning policy with existing degree planning and advising resources, which are based on quarters.
The proposal with the complete text of the approved revisions to
Regulation 600 is available at:
