Maximum Unit Appeal

To meet federal and state satisfactory academic progress requirements, you are expected to complete a degree program within a maximum allowable time frame. Undergraduates who have attempted 180 units, and post-baccalaureate students who have attempted 60 post-baccalaureate units are ineligible for all types of financial aid including grants, work–study, and loans. If you have reached a unit limit and would like to be considered for financial aid funding, please print, complete, and submit a maximum units appeal. Appeals must be submitted by the census date (fourth week of school) in order to be reinstated for aid during that term. Deadline to submit appeal for Fall 2023 is September 18, 2023; deadline to submit appeal for Spring 2024 is February 16, 2024.

You can print and complete a 2023-2024 Maximum Units Appeal found on our Forms page starting May 1, 2023. Please provide your signature and email us the completed appeal via your Wildcat email or the email account you reported on your FAFSA.
