I dropped two courses first year

So I'm first year social science. I took math and chem for my electives and hated them so I dropped them, but mostly because I'm working too much this semester to pay tuition, but anyways.

I was told by the social sciences department it wasn't a big deal if I dropped these courses. I'm interested in the human behavior program and I was told I only need 24 units for entry? The website says so complete socsci 1 I must have 30 units, so If I only do 24 units what happens? I'm fine with doing two courses in the summer but can I still even apply to a second year program?

Thanks a lot for any help!

You can take 2 courses in the summer if worst comes to worst.

Thanks for posting on MacInsiders, Faith!

Not sure who you spoke with in the Soc Sci department, but it sounds like they gave you bad advice. Did you speak with an academic advisor?

Saying it's not a 'big deal' to drop courses, doesn't make much sense to me. You need to take the required amount of courses, as you correctly pointed out.


30 units:

Required: 18 units of Social Sciences
Electives: 12 units of courses of your choosing which may include Social Sciences

So you'll want to look at taking summer courses to make up for the dropped electives so you can get 30 units. You won't be able to enter Level II until you complete Level I with the 30 units.

If you dropped the 2 classes early on in September, you may be eligible for a refund or some money back. Might want to talk with the Registrar about that.
