The University of California, Merced is on the semester system. The academic year is divided into two semesters, and summer sessions during the summer term. Quarter units earned previously at another institution are converted to semester units by dividing the quarter units earned for each course by 1.5; for example, 4 quarter units equals 2.667 semester units.
