Journey to 30

To meet the normal progress to degree requirement, undergraduate students are expected to pass an average of 15 units per semester or 30 units per academic year, completing the 120 units necessary for graduation in four years. Each semester you decide not to enroll in 15 units, you will have an item appear on your checklist one week after open registration called Journey to 30. If you are NOT planning to enroll in at least 15 units for the upcoming term, please acknowledge you have read the Journey to 30 requirement on your checklist and understand the implications. 

In other words, the amount of units you need to pass must average out to 30 units per academic year over a four-year period in order to graduate within four years. For example, CSE, MATH, and COGS majors might take 28 units their first year and complete 32 units their second year. Be aware that Cal Grant awards are limited to four academic years.
