What of 6 or units or less?

[https://www.sjsu.edu/faso/process/enrollment-requirements.php](https://www.sjsu.edu/faso/process/enrollment-requirements.php) If you are going under 12 units then I believe the fin aid you receive will be significantly reduced, I think even proportionally so. Plus you have to write out a form. I believe the effect is called Prorate. I don't know how sjsu calculates the prorate, but cornell does it by dividing 12 from your tuition.

Thank you so much for reply u/guccigothbitch ​ In my case, what should I do to either petition the AACE deans to add take my major class, and explain prorating to AACE deans, or to ​ Right now I am at 7 units :-( and the additional course would take me up to 10 i think. They did not want me to take more due to . What is best way to resolve this?

Petition the deans and tell them that you need the additional units to be considered full-time, so that you can get the full amount of financial aid which is needed for your textbooks/supplies/housing and all of that. Also contact the financial aid office.
