Class Enrollment

Students will be enrolled in COMS 101 and one other class. COMS 101 is a required course for all students and it is advantageous to be able to access this class through Quarter Plus as this will give students flexibility going forward. The second class will be selected depending on the student's college credit, AP/IB scores, and class capacity. GE courses are required for all students. Please refer to your specific degree requirements in the Cal Poly Catalog.

Please note that "EXSS S250" is a temporary placeholder course for course fees that you will see on your account.

Academic Resources

While the Quarter Plus Program schedule is rigorous, we want to make sure all our students have the tools they need to succeed. For students seeking support with their studies, there are several options. Quarter Plus learning assistants will be assigned to each class and will host optional study sessions to aid students. Learning Assistants will be in the classroom with their students during classes and thus will know exactly what was covered and where students may be struggling.

Class instructors will also be hosting office hours where students can receive support in their studies. Please refer to the instructor page for instructor office hours. Furthermore, the Quarter Plus program will have an assigned academic advisor on campus to assist students in planning ahead for the rest of their year.

Checking for Duplicate Credits

Please be diligent about checking your assigned classes. It is your responsibility to ensure that we have not assigned you to a class where you already received credit. If you see a mistake, please inform us as soon as possible so we can make corrections. It may be too late to change your assigned courses once you begin the program on August 17th, 2018.
