Can I take MORE than 128 Units?

I need some help.

I'm a transfer student. 52 hours transferred, but only 36 of those applied towards courses I need. That means I've already used 16 elective hours.

I want to minor in screenwriting, but I have to take 96 of 128 hours in my school. Screenwriting is outside of my school(CLAS) and requires 16 hours for a minor. That means if I used 16 elective hours for Screenwriting + the 16 elective hours that transferred in, I would use up ALL 32 of my possible elective hours.

The problem is, there are still some classes outside of my department that would also meet my major requirement. Can I take 132 units, or 136? I'm hoping to transfer into SCA...but if I don't get in, I want to know that I will still be alright and I can just take a few extra summer classes.

If this isn't too confusing, I'd LOVE some help!
