12 Credit Rule Reminder

The deadline for dropping classes is coming up, but in order to stay in status you must keep a minimum of 12 credits each quarter. Changing to Pass/Non-Credit is another way to protect your GPA, but it may or may not be best for you depending on the circumstances. If you have questions about dropping classes or changing to Pass/Non-Credit please see an advisor immediately.
