Background

SP 13-02 established a unit load limitation for undergraduate students on academic probation and included a procedure that students could pursue to exceed the limitation.  SP 14-17 updates that policy to allow for the completion of required 4-unit remedial and/or lab-based coursework, while maintaining the existing policy for students in good academic standing.
