|(A)||The minimum number of units
for the Bachelor's degree shall be 180; of which at least 64 units shall be
upper division (numbered 100-199). Eight units of freshmen seminars and/or eight units of 300 level
courses may be applied toward the degree.
Credit for special studies courses (195 through 199) is limited to 16 units, eight of which may be applied to the major.
Credit earned through the CEEB Advanced Placement Tests may be applied toward the General School and General Education requirements. If a student takes an equivalent UCLA course, unit credit for such duplication will be deducted before graduation.
Advanced Placement credit obtained by the student prior to entering the University shall not be counted toward the maximum unit limitation either for selection of a major or graduation.
Courses in the 400 and 500 series are not open for credit to undergraduate students in the School of the Arts. University Extension courses with the prefix "X" do not apply toward the degree. University Extension courses designated XLC shall apply toward the degree, and will be awarded grade point and unit credit.
Students are normally expected to complete the work for the Bachelor's degree with no more than 180 units. In unusual circumstances a student will be allowed to exceed the 180 units, up to a maximum of 216 units. After having credit for 216 units, a student will be permitted to continue only in rare cases approved by the Dean. [Am 28 May 96]
|(B)||Undergraduate students may take graduate courses (200 level) to apply toward their Bachelor's degree when such courses are approved by petition and the student is qualified according to the criteria established by the School Executive Committee. Graduate courses approved for application on the Bachelor's degree may not be used to fulfill requirements for a higher degree (see Divisional Regulation 302).|

|(F)||Except as otherwise
provided in SR 614, 630 and 642, 35 of the final 45 units completed for
the Bachelor's degree must be earned in residence in the School of the
Arts and Architecture. (A student is "in residence" only while enrolled and
attending classes as a major in one of the departments of the School of
the Arts and Architecture.) Not more than 18 of these 35 units may be
completed in Summer Session on the Los Angeles campus.
When students transfer from another institution, from University Extension, or from another College or School of the University, with senior standing, there is the additional requirement that, of the 35 units to be earned in residence in the School of the Arts and Architecture, 28 must be in upper division including 16 upper division units in the major department.
Courses in University of California Extension may not be offered as part of this residence requirement. A student who is enrolled in the Education Abroad Program must satisfy the residence requirement by earning 35 of his/her final 90 units, including the final 12 units, in residence in the School of the Arts and Architecture.
|(G)||Reciprocity with other UC campuses: Students who transfer to UCLA from other UC campuses and have met all General Education Requirements prior to attending UCLA are not required to complete the School of the Arts and Architecture's General Education Requirements.
