Chapter I: General Provisions

Section 1: The Departmental Scholar

Regulation A-300

A student who has completed 24 courses or 96 quarter units at UCLA, or the equivalent at another institution, and who has completed the requirements in preparation for a major, may be designated a Department of (...) Scholar. Departments will designate only exceptionally promising students as Departmental Scholars, subject to approval of the Graduate Council. The Departmental Scholar will be admitted provisionally to the Los Angeles Graduate Division in his or her department or in an interdepartmental degree program in which that department is a component field. In order to obtain both a Bachelor's and Master's degree, the Departmental Scholar must fulfill requirements of each of these programs. No course may be used to fulfill the requirements of both these degrees. For awarding the grade A+ in courses used to satisfy the Master's degree requirements, Departmental Scholars shall be governed by grading Regulation A-308. [Am 2 Dec 81]

Should a student for any reason be forced to, or wish to, withdraw from the Departmental Scholar program, his or her department will notify the Graduate Division, and the student's provisional admission to the Graduate Division will be lapsed. [Variance to SR 510.]

Section 2. Application of Graduate Courses Toward Bachelor's Degree

Regulation A-302

With specific approval by the instructor and the department, and subject to the requirements of the college in which the student is enrolled, qualified undergraduate students may take 200 series courses to apply toward their Bachelor's degrees. The departmental plans and the list of such courses shall be filed by the department with the Graduate Division and with the Deans of the colleges concerned. No course taken by an undergraduate to fulfill requirements for the Bachelor's degree can be used to fulfill requirements for a higher degree

Section 3. Probation and Dismissal

Regulation A-304

     (A) The following provisions shall govern the scholastic status of all undergraduate students at Los Angeles except students in the School of Dentistry and School of Medicine:

          (1) Academic Probation. A student shall be placed on academic probation if, while in good standing, the student fails to maintain at least a grade "C" average for all courses undertaken in a quarter.

          (2) Academic Disqualification. A student shall be subject to disqualification from further registration at the University if (a) the student's grade-point average falls below 1.5 for any quarter, or (b) after two quarters on academic probation the student has not achieved a grade-point average of 2.0 (C average) for all courses undertaken in the University, or (c) while on academic probation the student's grade-point average for work undertaken during any quarter falls below 2.0 (C average).

          (3) Minimum Progress. An undergraduate student, except for students in the College of Letters and Science (SR A-304(4)), who does not pass at least 36 units during any three consecutive terms shall be placed on probation, and an undergraduate student who does not pass at least 32 units during any three consecutive terms shall be subject to disqualification from further registration at the University. Courses bearing solely letter designations may be used to meet this requirement only during the first three quarters of residence. Petitions for exception to these requirements must be approved by the Dean and may be granted only on account of poor health or of regular outside occupation requiring half-time or more. [Am 21 Feb 92; 5 Jun 01]

          (4) Minimum and Expected Cumulative Progress. In the College an undergraduate student is required to enroll in a minimum of 13 units in a regularly scheduled quarter and to maintain expected cumulative progress, as specified in Letters and Science Regulation 452. An undergraduate student who does not fulfill unit requirements for expected cumulative progress in the previous two completed quarters shall be placed on probation and after four completed quarters shall be subject to disqualification from further registration at the University. Courses bearing solely letter designations may be used to meet this requirement only during the first three quarters of residence. Petitions for exceptions to these requirements must be approved by the Vice Provost for Undergraduate Education and may be granted only for extraordinary circumstances. [En 5 Jun 01]

     (B) A student who fails to meet the minimum scholarship or minimum progress requirements specified in paragraph (A) is subject to such supervision as the Faculty of the college or school may determine. The Faculty or its designated agents may (1) disqualify such a student from further registration as provided in paragraph (A) (2) or (A) (3); (2) suspend disqualification, continuing the student on probation; or (3) authorize the return on probation of a disqualified student. [Variance to SR 900.]

Regulation SR-900

     (A) To transfer from one campus of the University to another, or from one college or school to another on the same campus, a student who has been academically disqualified or is on academic probation must obtain the approval of the Faculty, or its designated agent, to whose jurisdiction transfer is sought. Upon completion of the transfer the student is subject to the supervision specified in paragraph (B).

     (B) Each Division may enact legislation governing the use of the grade Incomplete in the determination of a student's scholastic status.

     (C) Modification of this regulation must be approved by the Assembly.

Regulation SR-902

     (A) Faculties, Graduate or other Councils, and their designated agents may not authorize the permanent entry of the terms Subject to Academic Disqualification and Academic Probation on official transcripts of record except as authorized by the Assembly in the case of designated professional schools. These terms shall be reserved for internal University use. Designations of unsatisfactory scholastic status (see Regulation A-304) on transcripts are authorized only when a review of the performance of a student who has become academically deficient has resulted in final denial of registration for the next ensuing quarter by a Faculty, a Graduate or other Council, or their agents.

     (B) On campuses having authorized variances from the grading system specified in Senate Regulation 780, the scholarship requirements stated in (D) below shall be interpreted in terms of the approved equivalents specified in the legislation of the local Senate Division as ratified by the Assembly.

     (C) In the case of undergraduates, exceptions to these scholarship regulations, and the approval or denial of registration as hereinafter provided, may be authorized in individual instances only by the Faculty concerned, or by its designated agents. Annually the appropriate officer of each college shall report to the Faculty concerned a summary of all actions taken under these regulations.

     (D) An undergraduate student is in scholastic good standing if not subject to academic probation or disqualification as defined in Regulation A-304. Any transcript of record transmitted to a person or agency outside the University shall be accompanied by a statement of the student's scholastic standing on the date of the transcript or the date on which he or she left the University. Disqualification of graduate students is at the discretion of the Dean of the Graduate Division concerned.

Section 4. Grades

Regulation A-306. General

     (A) The Schools of Dentistry, Medicine, and Law shall develop their own grading codes for their respective professional programs and these programs are therefore excepted from the provisions of this grading code.

     (B) The instructor in charge of a course shall be responsible for determining the grade of each student in the course. The standards for evaluating student performance shall be based upon the course description as approved by the appropriate course committee.

     (C) The final grade in a course shall be based upon the instructor's evaluation of the student's achievement in the course. When on an examination or other work submitted by a student, the student is suspected of having engaged in plagiarism or otherwise having cheated, the suspected infraction is to be reported to the appropriate administrative officer of the University for consideration of disciplinary proceedings against the student. Until such proceedings, if any, have been completed, the grade DR (deferred report) shall be assigned for that course. (See A- 315) If in such disciplinary proceedings it is determined that the student did engage in plagiarism or otherwise cheat, the administrative officer, in addition to imposing any discipline, shall report back to the instructor of the course involved, the nature of the plagiarism or cheating. In light of that report, the instructor may replace the grade DR with a final grade that reflects an evaluation of that which may fairly be designated as the student's own achievement in the course as distinguished from any achievement that resulted from plagiarism or cheating.

     (D) If an instructor in charge of a course has been determined by the Committee on Privilege and Tenure to have assigned a grade on any basis other than academic grounds, the Committee on Privilege and Tenure shall communicate that information to the Division Chair. Within a period of two weeks after notification, guided by the Committee on Committees, the Division Chair shall establish an ad hoc committee to determine whether the grade shall be changed. The ad hoc committee shall consist of at least three members, with at least one member a representative of the department involved. The ad hoc committee will obtain whatever records are available and use these records to make a final decision concerning the grade. If the records are not adequate, then the committee may assign a grade of Pass, or allow the student to repeat the course without penalty. The ad hoc committee will report to the Division Chair, who shall report the change of grade to the Registrar. In order to protect the student, the grade shall be changed, if warranted, within four weeks following the formation of the ad hoc committee. [Variance to SR 780.]

Regulation A-307. Grading of Undergraduate Students

     (A) The level of achievement of all undergraduate students shall be designated in the following terms: A+ (extraordinary), A (superior), B (good), C (fair), D (poor), F (fail), I (incomplete), IP (in progress), P (passed), NP (not passed), DR (deferred report). The passing grades A, B, C, and D may be modified by plus (+) or minus (-) suffixes. [Am 21 Jan 92]

     (B) Grade points per unit shall be assigned by the Registrar as follows: A-4, B-3, C-2, D-1, F-zero. "Plus" grade carry three-tenths grade-point more per unit, with the exception of the A+, and "minus" grades carry three-tenths grade-point less per unit than unsuffixed grades. Subject to the provisions of SR 634, courses in which a student receives a P grade shall be counted in satisfaction of degree requirements, but courses in which either a P, NP, DR, I or IP has been awarded shall be disregarded in determining a student's grade-point average. Faculty are instructed to use the A+ grade only for truly extraordinary performance. [Am 21 Jan 92]

     (C) The grades A, B, C, and P denote satisfactory progress toward a degree. The D grade denotes progress toward a degree, but as stipulated in Divisional Regulation A-304 such a grade must be offset by higher grades. [Variance to SR 780.]

Regulation A-308. Grading of Graduate Students

     (A) The work of all graduate students shall be reported in terms of the following grades: A (superior achievement), B (satisfactorily demonstrated potentiality for professional achievement in the field of study), C (passed the course but did not do work indicative of potentiality for professional achievement in the field of study), F (fail), I (incomplete), IP (in progress), DR (deferred report), S (satisfactory) U (unsatisfactory. The passing grades A, B and C may be modified by plus (+) or minus (-) suffixes.

     (B) Grade-point per unit shall be assigned by the Registrar as follows: A-4, B-3, C-2, F-zero. "Plus" grades (except A+) carry three-tenths grade-point more per unit and "minus" grades carry three- tenths grade-point less per unit than unsuffixed grades. The grade A+ carries 4.0 grade-points per unit, the same as for an (unsuffixed A;) but when A+ is reported, it represents extraordinary achievement. Courses in which a student receives an S grade may be counted in satisfaction of degree requirements, but courses in which either an S, U, DR, I or IP has been awarded shall be disregarded in determining a student's grade-point average.

     (C) The grades A, B, and S denote satisfactory progress toward a degree. A graduate student is subject to dismissal if the student's cumulative grade-point average falls below 3.00. [Variance to SR 780., 784.]

Regulation A-309. The I Grade

     (A) The grade I may be assigned when a student's work is of passing quality, but is incomplete. The grade I shall only be assigned when it is established to the instructor's satisfaction that the student's work is incomplete for good cause. When the instructor assigns the grade "I" on the grade sheet, the grade should be accompanied by a notation specifying what work must be done to remove the incomplete. [Am 3 Dec 80]

     (B) The student is entitled to have the grade I replaced by a passing grade and to receive unit credit and grade-points provided he or she satisfactorily completes the work of the course by the end of the next full term that he or she is in residence in regular session following the term in which the I was received. The Dean of the appropriate school or college has authority to extend the deadline for completion in the event of unusual circumstances that would clearly impose an unfair hardship on the student if the original deadline were maintained.

     (C) If the work is not completed according to the provisions of A-309 (B), the grade I shall automatically be replaced with F, NP or U as appropriate.

     (D) The Graduate Council may establish rules under which the authority to approve limited extensions of time under A-309 (B) for graduate students is delegated to departmental advisors. [Variance to SR 780.]

Regulation A-310. The P and NP Grades for Undergraduate Students

     (A) Subject to the limitations in (C) and (D) below, an undergraduate student in good standing may enroll in one course each term on a P/NP basis.

     (B) A grade of P shall be awarded only for work which would otherwise receive a grade of C or better.

     (C) A student who has received two NP grades shall be excluded form enrolling in a course on P/NP basis for the next term in residence.

     (D) A department or school may designate any course or courses as courses not to be taken by its majors on a P/NP basis, and may at its option require a student, who has received a P in such a course before entering a major, to repeat the course for a letter grade.

     (E) A student who has not elected the P/NP option in a preceding term may take two courses P/NP.

     (F) The Council on Educational Development and the Committee on Undergraduate Courses and Curricula may authorize exceptions to (A) and (E) above when they would be inconsistent with the purpose of design of experimental courses or programs which these committees may approve. [Variance to SR 782.]

Regulation A-311. The S and U Grades for Graduate Students

     (A) With the approval of the Graduate Council, and the consent of the departments involved, individual study or other work undertaken for credit toward a degree by a graduate student may be evaluated by means of the grades S and U.

     (B) A graduate student in good standing may enroll each term in one course graded on an S/U basis. This course shall be outside the major field and in addition to those individual study and research courses (500 series) grade S/U in the student's major field.

     (C) A grade of S shall be awarded only for work which would otherwise receive a grade of B or better. [Variance to SR 784.]

Regulation A-312. The IP Grade for Graduate and Undergraduate Students

     (A) For courses authorized to extend over more than one quarter and where evaluation of the student's performance is deferred until the end of the final term, a provisional grade of IP (in progress) shall be assigned in the intervening term(s). The provisional grade shall be replaced by the final grade if the student completes the full sequence. The Faculty of each school or college and the Graduate Council are authorized to regulate the award of credit in cases where the full sequence is not completed.

     (B) Authorization for the use of IP grades in undergraduate courses shall be by the Committee on Undergraduate Courses and Curricula.

     (C) Authorization for the use of IP grades in graduate courses shall be by the Graduate Council. [Variance to SR 780.]

Regulation A-313. Correction of Grades

All grades, except DR, I and IP are final when filed by an instructor in the end-of-term course report. However, the Registrar is authorized to change a final grade: a) upon written request of an instructor, provided that a clerical or procedural error is the reason for the change, or b) upon written request of the Chair of the Division in cases where it has been determined by the Committee on Privilege and Tenure that an instructor has assigned a grade on any basis other than academic grounds. No change of grade may be made on the basis of reexamination or, with the exception of the I and IP grades, the completion of additional work. Any grade change request made more than one year after the original filing must be validated for authenticity of the instructor's signature by the department chair. Any grade change request made by an instructor who has left the University must be countersigned by the department chair. [Variance to SR 780.]

Regulation A-314. Repetition of Courses

Unless repetition of the course for credit has been authorized by the Committee on Undergraduate Courses and Curricula or the Graduate Council, repetition is subject to the following conditions:

     (A) A student may repeat only those courses in which he or she received a grade of C-, D+, D, D-, F, NP or U. Courses in which a grade of C-, D+, D, D-, or F has been received may not be repeated on a P/NP or S/U basis.

     (B) More than one repetition of a course requires approval by the appropriate Dean in all instances.

     (C) Degree credit for a course will be given only once, but the grade assigned at each enrollment shall be permanently recorded.

     (D) In computing the grade-point average of an undergraduate who repeats courses in which he or she received a C-, D+, D, D- or F, only the most recently earned grades and grade-points shall be used for the first 16 units repeated. In the case of further repetitions, the grade-point average shall be based on all grades assigned and total units attempted.

     (E) For a graduate student, all courses attempted and graded A, B, C, F, and modifications thereto, including repeated courses, shall be used in computing the grade-point average. [Variance to SR 780.]

Regulation A-315. The DR Grade

The grade DR (deferred report) shall be entered on the student's record: a) when to the faculty member's knowledge, the student's work in the course is complete, but the faculty member is not able to assign a grade, or: b) when disciplinary proceedings are in progress according to the provisions of A- 306 (C). The DR shall not itself be calculated in any way in the student's grade-point average. The DR shall be changed to a grade, or perhaps to an incomplete, only when the Registrar receives a written request from the instructor which indicates that the student has clarified the situation.

The report of the grade DR must be accompanied by a letter from the instructor to the Dean of the school or college, and to the student stating the basis for that action. For students enrolled in a course approved by the Graduate Council, the Dean of the Graduate Division is the dean of record. For students in a course approved by any undergraduate course committee, the dean of record is the dean of the college or school in which the course is offered. The Dean shall establish a date or a specific circumstance terminating the period of the Deferral of Report and inform the Registrar, the instructor and the student. Unless changed by the instructor as specified in the preceding paragraph, the DR shall then automatically become F. [Variance to SR 780.]

Section 5. Special Studies Courses

Regulation A-320. Special Studies Courses

     (A) Upper-Division Tutorials for undergraduate students are numbered 195 through 199. These courses are structured by the instructor and student at the time they are initiated. The structure of the course, including both the specific proposed course of study and the requirements that must be met before a grade can be assigned, is formalized through a contract application.

     (B) In order to enroll in an Upper-Division Tutorial, a contract must be approved by both the instructor-in-charge and the Chair of the department or program. One instructor may not sponsor more than seven (7) students enrolled in an Upper-Division Tutorial (195-199) in any one term.

     (C) For 195CE internships, with the approval of the Chair of a department or program, a faculty member may act as the instructor-in-charge for a group of more than 7 undergraduate students whose work will be guided by graduate student instructors.

     (D) Upper-Division Tutorials (195-199) may only be taken through UCLA Extension on a XLC basis. The Extension contract must be approved by the instructor-in-charge and the Chair of the department or program. The instructor must be a faculty member of the department or program. The same limitations below apply to XLC 195-199s.

     (E) Limitations:

          (1) Enrollment requires the consent of the instructor who is to supervise the study. The applicant shall show that his or her background is adequate for the proposed study.

          (2) Credit for Upper-Division Tutorials (195-199) in a single term is limited to a maximum of 8 units. Subject to the provisions of Divisional Regulation A-310, the student may take any Upper-Division Tutorial (195-199) on a Passed/NotPassed or a letter grade basis, but the total number of units allowed in Upper-Division Tutorials (195-199) for a letter grade is 32.

          (3) At the close of the term, some tangible evidence of work accomplished, signed by the student and the supervising faculty member, shall be filed and retained by the department or program for three years.

          (4) At the outset of an Upper-Division Tutorial (195-199), the student must complete and the instructor-in-charge must sign a contract, which will include the specific proposed course of study and the requirements to be met before a grade can be assigned.

          (5) In order to enroll in an Upper-Division Tutorial (195-199), a student must have advanced junior standing and at least a 3.0 GPA in his or her major field, or he/she must have senior standing.

After the first term, students may petition to enroll in more than 20 units if they have an overall GPA of 3.0 (a "B") or better and have attained at least a "B" average in the preceding term with all courses passed. Excess unit petitions must be filed and approved by the Dean no later than the end of the third week of instruction. First-term transfer students from any other campus of the University of California may carry excess units on the same basis as students who have completed one or more terms at UCLA; however, they are not encouraged to do so.

     (B) Repeats: Undergraduate students may repeat a total of 16 units. Only those courses in which they receive a grade of "C-" or lower, "NP," or "U" grades may be repeated to gain unit credit. Courses in which a letter grade is received may not be repeated on a P/NP or S/U basis. Courses originally taken on a P/NP or S/U basis may be repeated on the same basis or for a letter grade only. The most recently earned letter grades and grade points are computed in the GPA. After repeating 16 units, the GPA is based on all letter grades assigned and total united attempted. Repetition of a course more than once requires the approval of the Dean and is granted only under extraordinary circumstances. Degree credit for a course is given only once, but the grade assigned each time the course is taken is permanently recorded on the transcript. There is no guarantee that, in a later term, a course can be repeated (such as in cases when a course is deleted or no longer offered). In these cases, students should consult with their academic counselor to determine if there is an alternative course that can be taken to satisfy a requirement. The alternate course would NOT count as a repeat of the original course. All repeated courses are to be counted in Study List limits.

     (C) Concurrent enrollment in courses offered by University Extension or another institution is not permitted except in extraordinary circumstances, and no credit will be given for such courses unless the approval of the Dean has been obtained by petition prior to enrollment.

All major requirements, including the "Preparation for the Major," shall be submitted to the Faculty Executive Committee for approval before they become effective. Courses designated as "Preparation for the Major" must be lower division course work; any exceptions require the approval of the Faculty Executive Committee

     (B) A major shall consist of a minimum of 40 upper division units.

     (C) Requirements for the majors and curricula, including prerequisites and limitations on programs, and alternative electives, shall be submitted by the departments to the Faculty Executive Committee of the School for approval. As changes in major requirements occur, students are expected to satisfy the new requirements insofar as possible. Petitions for adjustment should be submitted to the Dean of the School in hardship cases.

     (D) Any student failing to attain a scholarship average of at least two grade points per unit in his/her major department/program may, at the option of the department/program, be denied the privilege of a major in that department/program

     (E) A department/program may submit to the Dean of the School the name of any student who, in the opinion of the department/program, cannot profitably continue in the major together with a statement of the basis for this opinion, and probable cause for the lack of success. The Dean may permit a change of major, or may with the approval of the President, require the student to withdraw from the School

     (F) A minimum of 24 upper division units must be completed in the major while in residence in the School

     (G) A student in good standing who wishes to change major may petition the department or committee in charge of that proposed major, provided that the student can complete the proposed field of study without exceeding the 216-unit limit. Final action on the petition will be taken by the Dean. A student on probation may not normally change major

     (H) The candidate shall have satisfied the requirements of a major in the Luskin School of Public Affairs with a "C" average in all upper and lower division courses taken for the major. In addition, departments may designate, with executive committee approval, certain courses required for the major, minors or specializations, which much be passed with at least a "C" grade. Before the degree is granted, the department or unit in charge of the student's minor or specialization must certify that the student has completed the requirements for the minor

     (I) With department and school approval, a student in good standing in the School may enroll in a Minor, one offered by the School or one offered outside the School, provided the student can complete the requirements for her or his major and minor within 216 units

     (J) Departments in the School may offer Undergraduate Minors in accordance with Divisional Regulation A347. The Faculty Executive Committee of the School must approve the creation of a minor program, including the course requirements and admissions criteria. As changes in requirements for a minor occur, students are expected to satisfy the new requirements insofar as they can unless they have completed 50% of the required coursework for the minor at the time the new requirements go into effect. Petitions for adjustment should be submitted to the Undergraduate Program Chair for a departmental minor and to the Dean for a school-wide minor for approval

     (K) School-wide minors are considered “free-standing minors” because they have no specific departmental home; such minors shall be governed by a faculty advisory committee, appointed by the Dean

Regulation 490. Dean's Honors [Am 12 May 22]

     (A) Dean’s Honors. Dean’s Honors will be awarded each quarter to students completing their program of study with distinction according to the criteria established by the Dean of the School.

     (B) Latin Honors. Latin Honors are awarded at graduation to students with superior grade-point averages. To be eligible, students must have completed 90 or more units for a letter grade at the University of California and must have attained an overall grade-point average at graduation that places them in the top five percent of the school’s graduates for summa cum laude, the next five percent for magna cum laude, and the next ten percent for cum laude. Coursework taken on the Education Abroad Program is applied toward Latin honors at graduation. The minimum GPAs required are subject to change on an annual basis. Required GPAs in effect in the graduating year (fall, winter, spring, summer) determine student eligibility. Students should consult their Degree Progress Reports, Degree Audits, or the Schedule of Classes for the most current calculations of Latin honors.

     (C) Departmental Honors Program and Departmental Honors at Graduation. The Luskin School may establish an Honors Program that may include supplementary courses and advanced directed study, or both. The School’s Faculty Executive Committee must approve all honors programs. Students completing the program shall be awarded Departmental Honors or Departmental Highest Honors at graduation, according to criteria set by the department and approved by the School’s Faculty Executive Committee. 

Regulation 491. Honors with the Bachelor's Degree [Repealed 12 May 22]

Regulation 491. Academic Progress and Study List Limits [Am 12 May 22] (Formerly numbered Regulation 492)

     (A) The Study List is a record of classes that a student is taking for a particular term. Each term the Study List must include from 12 to 19 units. During a regular term of enrollment, undergraduate students in the school are required to enroll in a minimum of 12 units. After the first term, students may petition to enroll in more than 19 units if they have an overall grade-point average of 3.0 (B) or better and have attained at least a B average in the preceding term with all courses passed. Excess units petitions must be filed and approved by the Dean no later than the end of the third week of instruction. First- term transfer students from any other campus of the University may carry excess units on the same basis as students who have completed one or more terms at UCLA; however, they are not encouraged to do so.

     (B) Repeats: Undergraduate students may repeat a total of 16 units. Only those courses in which they receive a grade of C- or lower; NP or U grades may be repeated to gain unit credit. Courses in which a letter grade is received may not be repeated on a P/NP or S/U basis. Courses originally taken on a P/NP or S/U basis may be repeated on the same basis or for a letter grade only. The most recently earned letter grades and grade points are computed in the grade-point average (GPA). After repeating 16 units, the GPA is based on all letter grades assigned and total units attempted. The grade assigned each time a course is taken is permanently recorded on the transcript. Repetition of a course more than once requires the approval of the Dean and is granted only under extraordinary circumstances. Degree credit for a course is given only once, but the grade assigned each time the course is taken is permanently recorded on the transcript. There is no guarantee that in a later term a course can be repeated (such as in cases when a course is deleted or no longer offered). In these cases students should consult with their academic counselor to determine if there is an alternate course that can be taken to satisfy a requirement. The alternate course would NOT count as a repeat of the original course. All repeated courses are to be counted in study list limits.

     (C) Concurrent enrollment in courses offered by University Extension or another institution is not permitted except in extraordinary circumstances, and no credit will be given for such courses unless the approval of the Dean has been obtained by petition prior to enrollment.

     (D) The inclusion of English A or Math A in a student's study list reduces the allowable maximum by one course in the term these courses are taken.

     (E) Minimum Progress: An undergraduate student in the Luskin School who does not pass at least 36 units during any three consecutive quarters in attendance shall be placed on probation for lack of progress. An undergraduate student who does not pass at least 32 units during any three consecutive quarters shall be subject to disqualification from further registration at the University

     (F) Student's Responsibility: The presentation of a study list by the student and its acceptance by the Luskin School evidences an obligation on the part of the student to faithfully perform the designated work to the best of his/her ability. Withdrawal from, or neglect of, any course entered on the study list, or a change in program without the formal permission of the Dean of the Luskin School renders the student liable to enforced withdrawal from the University, or other appropriate disciplinary action

     (G) Regulations as to the approval of study lists shall be such as may be adopted by the Executive Committee of the Luskin School

Section 6. Academic Requirements of the Herb Alpert School of Music [En 25 May 2016]

Regulation 493

The degrees of Bachelor of Arts or Bachelor of Music will be granted upon the following conditions:

     (A) Writing Requirements.

          (1) Writing I

              (a) Freshmen admitted to the School shall be exempt from the School’s Writing I course with one of the following: a score of 4 or above on one of the College Board AP English Language and Composition or Literature and Composition exams, a grade of “C” or better (a “C-“ is not acceptable) in a course equivalent to English Composition 3 taken at community college or other institution, or a combination of a score of 720 or higher on the SAT Reasoning Test Writing Section and superior performance on the English Composition 3 Proficiency Examination, or an International Baccalaureate Higher Level Examination score of 5 or above.

              (b) Freshmen admitted without one of the above must complete UCLA’s Writing I course, English Composition 3 or 3SL (English Composition, Rhetoric, and Language) within the first three terms of residence in the School with a grade of “C” or better (a “C-“ is not acceptable); the course may not be taken on a Pass/No Pass basis.

              (c) Students who have not satisfied the University’s Entry Level Writing Requirement must take the Analytical Writing Placement Examination (AWPE). Students whose native language is not English may need to take up to three additional English Composition (EC) courses before enrolling in a Writing I course: EC 1A (formerly ESL 33B), EC 1B (formerly ESL 33C), and EC 2i. All courses in this sequence must be passed with a grade of “C” or better (a “C-“ is not acceptable), and may not be taken on a Pass/No Pass basis

          (2) Writing II One course from the list of approved Writing II courses (available online, through degree audits, or in the Office of Student Services). The course must be completed with a grade of “C” or better (grade of “C-“ is not acceptable) before the seventh term of residence in the School; the course may not be taken on a Pass/No Pass basis. Applicable Writing II courses may be applied to preparation for the major or the minor and, if the Writing II course has been approved for general education credit by the Undergraduate Council, the course may also fulfill a foundation requirement.

          (3) Writing Requirements for Transfer Students.

              (a) California community college transfer students with 90 units or more who have completed the Intersegmental General Education Transfer Curriculum (IGETC) as set forth in SR-478 will have completed the School’s writing requirements (Writing I and Writing II).

              (b) No transfer student from another UC campus or other college shall be admitted to the School without completing a college-level writing course with a grade of “C” or better that the UCLA Office of Undergraduate Admission accepts as equivalent to English Composition 3; a grade of “C-“ is not acceptable.

              (c) Transfer students whose native language is not English may be required to take the ESLPE, even if they have completed IGETC and an English Composition 3 equivalent at their transfer institution.

All courses in this sequence must be passed with a grade of “C” or better (a “C-“ is not acceptable), and may not be taken on a Pass/No Pass basis.

     (B) Foreign Language Requirement. The foreign language requirement may be satisfied by one of the following methods: (1) completing a college-level foreign language course equivalent to level three or above at UCLA with a grade of C or Passed or better, or the yearlong American Sign Language sequence (ASL 1A-C), or (2) scoring 3, 4, or 5 on the College Board Advanced Placement (AP) foreign language examination in Chinese, French, German, Italian, Japanese, or Spanish, or scoring 4 or 5 in Latin (or another language by petition), thereby earning College credit or (3) presenting a UCLA foreign language departmental examination score indicating competency through level three. Students who wish to demonstrate proficiency in a language that is taught in a UCLA department that has no scheduled examination should contact the appropriate department to arrange for one. Students wishing to take an examination in a language not taught at UCLA should contact a School counselor.

     (C) The requirement must be completed within the first six terms of residence. A student whose entire secondary education has been taken in a language other than English may file a petition in the Office of Student Services to be exempt from the School’s foreign language requirement.

     (D) Quantitative Reasoning. Students must complete one course from the list of approved quantitative reasoning courses (available online, through degree audits, or in the Office of Student Services). Students may meet this requirement with an SAT I Reasoning Test Mathematics Section score of 600 or better; an SAT II Subject Test in Mathematics with a score of 550 or better also meets this requirement. An applicable course used to meet this requirement may also be applied toward a foundation area in General Education.

     (E) Diversity Requirement. Students must complete one course from the faculty-approved list of diversity courses (available online, through degree audits, or in the Office of Student Services). The course must be taken for a letter grade, and students must receive a grade of C or better (C- grade is not acceptable). The course selected may also satisfy a General Education requirement, a preparation for the major requirement, or major requirement.

Regulation 495. General Education Requirements

     (D) General Education and Transfer Students. Students who have transferred to the School from another UC campus after having satisfied their General Education Requirements prior to being admitted to UCLA are not required to complete the School’s General Education Foundation Area requirements. Transfer students from a California community college who have completed the Intersegmental General Education Transfer Curriculum (IGETC) are also not required to complete the School’s General Education Foundation Area requirements

Regulation 496. Regulations for the Major

The candidate must complete the requirements for a major in the Herb Alpert School of Music with a grade-point average of at least 2.0 (upper division courses). Requirements listed under 496 A-G are for all degree programs offered by departments in the school, including interdepartmental programs either sponsored jointly by two or more departments or free-standing within the School. [Am 07 Jun 2018]

     (A) Preparation for the Major is coursework essential for the student to be successful in the major and should be completed in a student’s first two years of enrollment. The total number of pre- major units required by a department or an interdepartmental program when combined with units required by the School for General Education (~38 units) and Writing (~10 units) shall not sum to more than 90 units of lower-division work; exceptions require the approval of the Faculty Executive Committee of the School. [Am 28 Feb 2019]

     (B) A major shall consist of at least 36 upper-division units but no more than 72 upper-division units in the department or interdepartmental program. [Am 28 Feb 2019]

     (C) All majors offered by the School will be “Capstone Majors” designed to enhance the development of advanced undergraduate students by engaging them in a culminating experience. To be defined by each department, the capstone requirement may be satisfied by an advanced upper division course that requires a recital or a studio project; or a senior seminar with a term paper; or a special studies course (195-199) with a term paper or creative project; or a comparable capstone experience approved by the Faculty Executive Committee of the School.

     (D) The faculty of each department is responsible for establishing student learning outcomes that describe what students should know, be able to do, and value by the end of their educational experience in each major. The learning outcomes must be linked to the coursework required for the pre-major and major. The student learning outcomes should be posted on online, and used to assess the effectiveness of the capstone experience or major as part of the department’s eight-year review. [Am 28 Feb 2019]

     (E) The Faculty Executive Committee of the School must approve majors and their requirements for graduation. As changes in major requirements occur, students are expected to satisfy the new requirements insofar as they can. Petitions for adjustment should be submitted to the department Chair for approval.

     (F) A student in good standing who wishes to change her/his major may petition the School and department in charge of that proposed major, provided that the student can complete the proposed field of study without exceeding 195 units.

     (G) A student in good standing may petition to complete two majors; one in the School and one outside the School, provided the requirements for both majors can be completed in 216 units (not counting Advance Placement units). Double majors within the School are not encouraged but may be completed with the Dean’s approval.

Regulation 497. Regulations for Undergraduate Minors

     (A) With department and school approval, a student in good standing in the School may enroll in a Minor, one offered by the School or one offered outside the School, provided the student can complete the requirements for her or his major and minor within 195 units (not counting Advance Placement units).

     (B) Departments in the School may offer Undergraduate Minors in accordance with Divisional Regulation A347. The Faculty Executive Committee of the School must approve the creation of a minor program, including the course requirements and admissions criteria. As changes in requirements for a minor occur, students are expected to satisfy the new requirements insofar as they can unless they have completed 50% of the required coursework for the minor at the time the new requirements go into effect. Petitions for adjustment should be submitted to the department Chair for a departmental minor and to the Dean for a school-wide minor for approval.

     (C) School-wide minors are considered “free-standing minors” because they have no specific departmental home; such minors shall be governed by a faculty advisory committee, appointed by the Dean.

Regulation 498. Honors

     (A) Departmental Honors Program and Departmental Honors at Graduation. Each department in the School may establish an Honors Program that may include supplementary courses and advanced directed study, or both. The School’s Faculty Executive Committee must approve all honors programs. Students completing the program shall be awarded Departmental Honors or Departmental Highest Honors at graduation, according to criteria set by the department and approved by the School’s Faculty Executive Committee.

     (B) Dean’s Honors. In accordance with campus regulation A-340(B), students with exceptional academic performance will be recognized each quarter by a transcript notation, “Dean’s Honors.” To receive Dean’s Honors the student must have at least 12 graded units per term, with a grade-point average of 3.8 for less than 16 units of work (3.7 GPA for 16 or more units). The transcript notation is posted on the student’s transcript for the appropriate term. Students are not eligible for Dean’s Honors in any given term if they receive an Incomplete or a Not Passed (NP) grade, change a grade, or repeat a course.

     (C) Latin Honors. Latin Honors are awarded at graduation to students with superior grade- point averages. To be eligible for Latin Honors, a student must have completed at least 90 units for a letter grade at the University of California. The levels of honors are summa cum laude, magna cum laude, and cum laude. The minimum grade-point requirements for each level are subject to change on an annual basis. Required grade- point averages in effect in the graduating year determine student eligibility.

Regulation 499. Academic Progress

     (A) Expected Progress. Students in the University of California are expected to complete 15 units each quarter. Accordingly, students who complete at least 45 units over a three quarter period (one academic year) are making expected progress and counted as a full- time equivalent student.

     (B) Minimum Progress and Academic Probation. An undergraduate student in the School who does not pass at least 40 units during any three consecutive quarters shall be placed on probation for lack of minimum progress. Students on probation will be placed on a contract written to assist them in satisfying minimal progress to degree. If a student on probation fails to meet the contract, he or she will be subject to disqualification from the major and enrollment in the University. An undergraduate student who fails to pass at least 32 units during any three consecutive quarters shall be subject to disqualification. All regulations governing minimum progress, academic probation and disqualification are reviewed and approved by the Faculty Executive Committee, posted online, and available in the Offices of Student Services in the School.

     (C) Students will be placed on academic probation if their term/overall GPA falls below 2.0 but is above or equal to 1.5. Students placed on probation will have two terms to bring their overall GPA back to 2.0. Students placed on academic probation who do not bring their overall GPA to 2.0 or above within two terms, or whose term GPA falls below 2.0, will become subject to disqualification. Students who are either on academic probation or who are subject to disqualification may not take classes on a Pass/No Pass option grading basis. Students who need to withdraw from any term while on academic probation or subject to dismissal from a previous term should meet with an academic counselor in the School’s advising unit

     (D) Study Lists.

          (1) Without special permission, a student in good scholastic standing may sign up for a study list ranging from 15 (minimum) to 20 (maximum) units. A student in good standing with 15 or more completed UCLA units may petition to enroll in more than 20 units, up to 30 units, provided he/she has an overall grade-point average of 3.0 (B or better) and has attained at least a B average in the preceding quarter, with all courses passed.

          (2) All repeated courses are counted in study list limits. The inclusion of English Composition A (zero units) in a student’s study list, or any other courses carrying a letter designation only, may reduce the study list requirement from a minimum of 12 units to 8 units in the term this course is taken.

          (3) Concurrent enrollment in courses offered by University Extension or another institution of higher education is not permitted except under extraordinary circumstances, and no credit will be given for such courses unless the approval of the Dean has been obtained by special petition prior to enrollment.

          (4) The Faculty Executive Committee of the School is responsible for approving rules that govern study lists for students enrolled in the Herb Alpert School of Music.

          (5) A presentation of a study list by the student and its acceptance of the School evidences an obligation on the part of the student to faithfully perform the designated work to the best of her or his abilities. Withdrawal from, or neglect of, any course entered on the study list, or a change in program without permission of the Dean of the School renders the student liable to enforced withdrawal from the University or appropriate disciplinary action.

Section 2. Requirements for Master's Degrees

Regulation 510. Thesis or Capstone Plan

At the option of the major department, master's programs may be offered under either the thesis or capstone plan. [Am 4 Jun 15]

     (A) Under either plan, requirements for the M.A. and M.S. degrees shall be determined by the departments, subject to approval by the Graduate Council. The minimum course requirements shall be the same for both the thesis and capstone plans. These requirements must include a minimum of 9 upper division and graduate level courses (the equivalent of 4 quarter units each), of which at least 5 must be graduate level (200 series or, with the approval of the Graduate Council, individual study or research courses in the 500 series). Individual departments shall specify the number of 500 series courses that may, with the approval of the Graduate Council, apply toward the divisional or the departmental minimum course requirements for Master's degrees. Departments shall specify also the number of times an individual student may enroll in any one of these courses. [Am 4 Jun 15]

     (B) For those departments offering degrees other than the M.A. and M.S., the same minimum requirements will apply except that the 5 graduate courses may be in the 200 and/or 400 series.

     (C) Under the Thesis Plan (Plan I), students complete a thesis, the subject of which must be approved by the student's major department (or by the committee responsible for an interdepartmental degree program) and by the faculty member who shall direct the thesis work. The master’s thesis must be read, evaluated and approved by a committee consisting of no fewer than three members, who are appointed by the Graduate Division in accordance with rules established by the Graduate Council.
