Where can I find the course descriptions?

General Catalog is available at

Please Note: If a course is in the catalog, it does not mean it will be offered during the Spring 2019 semester.

What does a Unit mean?

A credit or semester unit represents 1 hour of class work per week for one semester. It is assumed that 2 hours of preparation are required for each hour in class. 3 hours of laboratory per week are the equivalent of one unit. In a limited number of courses 2 hours of laboratory per week are the equivalent of one unit. Also, 2 hours of activity are normally equivalent to one unit of credit.

What is the number for maximum and minimum number of units I can take?

You need to have minimum 12 units and maximum is 16 units. Please note you have to register for minimum of 12 units to maintain a full-time status for immigration requirement.

Do I get all the classes I request?

Mostly you get the first choice of your classes. We will check your pre-requisites requirements after you submitted your course selections. We recommend you give us alternative classes in case your first choice is not available due to limitation of spaces or requirement of pre-requisites, or cancellation of class.

Can I select MBA Courses?

Yes, if you are MBA student at your home university, you can select MBA courses. There will be an addition fee (Professional Program Fee) applied. Please refer to “Program Fees”.

Can I change my classes after they have been approved?

Once we approved and confirmed your classes, you CANNOT make changes. Make sure that you get your selected classes approved by your advisor/professor (learning agreements) before completing the course selection. If you make any changes, a penalty fee will be applied.

If I have a problem with a course or class who should I contact?
