Information for Four-Year Option

In order to participate in the Beach Four-Year Pledge Program, first-time students must meet certain requirements and sign a Beach Pledge contract.

Participating students must:

  • Maintain at least a 3.0 cumulative GPA and a 2.5 Major GPA.
  • Earn at least 30 baccalaureate units each academic year toward graduation in approved major.
    • Unit Load: Students must enroll in a minimum of 15 units per semester. However, if students wish to enroll in less than 15 units per semester, students must take winter or summer session courses in order to earn the required units within the academic year.
      (Courses numbered 001-099 are excluded from the 30 required units.)
  • Each semester, students will submit their Degree Planner to their Beach Pledge advisor in order to ensure they are on track.
  • Remain in declared major unless change is approved by designated Beach Pledge advisor.
  • Enroll in required courses during the priority registration period and pay tuition and fees by the designated date.
