Is it Possible to Finish in 4 Quarters?

<p>I've heard of several students finishing up their last 2 years a quarter early, but what about two quarters early? For example, if you transfer with 70 semester units (I think that's 105 quarter units) you only need 50/75 more units, which can be done with roughly three 16-unit quarters, one 20-unit quarter, and a couple of summer classes.</p>

<p>Do they even allow you to take more than 4 classes in the quarter schools?</p>

<p>I've seen in several of my college buddies who didn't go straight to college from high school (I feel it too) a sort of against-the-clock syndrome. So it would be nice to at least get out a bit early. You'd also save some of that ''cost of attending'' cash that I know several of us here don't have. </p>

<p>On the other hand, I do believe in making a good experience out of the university days (kinda hard to do when your main goal is to get in and get out as fast as you can). I'm also assuming you don't get access to benefits such as the career centers if you've already finished. </p>

<p>Anyone planning to do this? Seen some crazy people here... I mean "I take 23 semester units of hard sciences" crazy.</p>

<p>I don't have personal experience (as I haven't transferred yet), but in my opinion, I don't think it's possible. As a transfer student, you are often behind the rest of the students who started right out of high school. Why? Because some credits obviously won't transfer over, especially for those transferring from a community college (like myself).</p>

<p>It would also depend on your major.</p>

<p>I wouldn't say it's impossible, but I'd figure it would be very difficult.</p>

<p>Thanks bud. I figured if anyone could do it, it would probably be the kids in the humanities. I suppose it's better to avoid the stress and settle for graduating a quarter early. Still wonder if there are any students here that have done this.</p>

<p>*BTW, I meant to post this in UC Transfers. Ah well.</p>
