Quarters of Eligibility

Each quarter in which a student does not enroll counts as a lost term of eligibility.

Students placed in AWP 1 will have up to three consecutive quarters to complete the Entry Level Writing Requirement, whether they enroll or not.

Students placed in AWP 2A will generally have up to five consecutive quarters to complete the Entry Level Writing Requirement, whether they enroll or not. Students who take AWP 2A and AWP 2B in the first two quarters and do not pass can thus enroll in AWP 1 for up to three subsequent quarters. Students who do not successfully complete 2A within the first three quarters will be prohibited from further enrollment at UC San Diego.

Regardless of placement, no student can take more than three quarters of AWP 1.
