Step 1: Planning Your Courses

Use these tools to figure out your course options for the upcoming term.

Get out your copy of your curriculum sheet — it tells you what courses you need to take to satisfy your degree.

If you have one, pull out your roadmap or flowchart — it tells you when you should be taking courses. 

Bring up the General Education (GE) course listing for any GE Areas you need to fulfill — the University Catalog gives you all of your options. Not all of the courses in a particular GE area will be offered every term. 

Check your Degree Progress Report — it's a tool in your BroncoDirect Student Center that gives you a visual of your completed degree requirements. Watch our how-to video below to learn how to use it. 

Consult the University Catalog — double check that you've satisfied prerequisites or planned the corequisites of the courses you're thinking of taking. 

Get in gear and Take 30 semester units a year! Most majors require 180 quarter units or 120 semester units to complete.

Enroll in 30 semester units every year to graduate in four years (for freshmen) or two years (for transfer students).

It's up to you if you want to take 15 units each semester, or save some units to take in the summer.

Visit the Take 30 website to learn more about the benefits of planning for 30 semester units.

Some holds will prevent you from registering, like an SF Financial Hold or Title IX Hold. Other holds, like the Classes Saved hold, just prevent your courses from being dropped. Watch our how-to video below to learn how to check your holds.
