One (1)-, 2-, and 3-Credit Courses

Some courses carry 1, 2, or 3 credits, because they require less work and meet for fewer hours than 5-credit courses (e.g., special interest seminars, laboratories, music lessons, and individual studies). The UCSC General Catalog shows the credit value for these courses after the course title, e.g., Music 9, Wind Ensemble (2 credits). The Schedule of Classes notes the number of credit hours for the course in the column immediately after the title: MUSC 9-01 Wind Ensemble 2.0.

If you are in the Part-Time Program, you are advised to pay special attention to the number of credits assigned for each course in which you enroll so that you do not exceed the 10-credit enrollment limit. Students in the Part-Time Program are assessed full fees if they enroll in more than 10 credits.
