AskLnS Peers is a program designed to provide drop-in advising for students in the College of Letters & Science. Peers offer advising at different locations around campus. In the evenings, you can find them in the residence halls during Fall and Spring semesters. There is no appointment required, so feel free to drop-in any time!
Every Wednesday afternoon from 1-4 pm throughout the year, there is now limited premed/pre-health drop-in advising appointments available to students on a first-come, first-served basis at 206 Evans Hall and and 156 Dwinelle Hall.
In general, a standard course load is 15 units of course work per semester. L&S requires all students to take 13 units minimum each semester, except in cases where the dean has approved a course load with fewer units. Be aware of Deadlines Dates for Class Schedule Changes that apply only to regular fall and spring semesters.
A grade of Incomplete (noted "I" on the transcript) may be assigned when a student has completed and passed a majority of the work required for a course but, for reasons beyond the student's control, cannot complete the entire course. Incomplete grades are contingent upon instructor approval, and instructors are under no obligation to grant them. In cases where an instructor agrees to assign an I grade, it is important to arrive at an agreement about exactly what is required in order to finish the course and what percentage of the grade will be based on the remaining work.
