This requirement really confuses me. 30 semester units is like 45quarter units, right? DANG!!! That is a load of classes!!! Too bad I have like a half of it. I shouldn't have taken some of the GE classes pass/no pass...
This is my first post on SDN; I usually frequent the boards to read, but never have posted. I am posting now to share my relief with you guys.
I came across this post and it scared the crap out of me, because i don't have 45 UC quarter units to complete this, and I submitted my secondary over a month ago. I went ahead and called the admissions office and they said that any non-BCP (read: ANY) can go to fulfililng this requirement. I told her i was engineering, and she said all those classes can fulfill the 30 semester hours.
Basically, as long as you went to a University and took the basic classes, you should be able to complete the 30 semester hours. Otherwise, complete before matriculation. Hopefully this is a relief to the others with this potential dilemma!
