Academic Support Information

The Office of Academic Advising and Retention is here to support you and your academic success! A common question we hear students ask regarding classes is, “Will I be able to graduate on time?” Here are some things to keep in mind as you take steps toward graduation:

  • Complete a minimum of 120 units (excluding remedial units).
  • Complete all course requirements for your major, minor, and General Education.
  • Maintain at least a 2.0 cumulative GPA. (Some majors/minors have higher GPA requirements).
  • Meet the residency requirement, 30 units total and the last 18 of 24 units must be completed at APU.
  • Complete your service credits each semester. Don’t wait until your final semester(s).
  • Stay on top of your tuition and other payments to the university.
  • Fulfill all other university requirements.
