Enrolling in Classes

See the Class Listings section for class times, rooms, instructors, and other enrollment information. For updated listings, see the online Schedule of Classes. See the Class Listings section and your school or College advisers (listed in the Academic Counseling section) to assemble a program of courses.

Plan two or three alternate programs in case your first choice of courses is not available. Do not choose two classes in the same final examination group (see the final examination chart in the Class Listings section) or select classes that conflict in meeting times. If conflicts are unavoidable, consult with the instructor of each course at the first class meeting.

Hepatitis B Vaccine Requirement

California law requires students 18 years and younger to provide proof of immunity to Hepatitis B prior to entering and enrolling at the University of California. The Hepatitis B vaccine is a three-shot series. If students have already received the series in their lifetime, there is no need to repeat it. To satisfy the requirement, all students must submit their information on the Ashe Center website. The Hepatitis B Requirement link is located in the Quick Links section.

Students who have not yet completed the series are granted a two-term grace period to comply. Failure to satisfy the requirement by the third term results in a hold on student records, whereby students cannot enroll in classes or use any University services.

Class Planner and Future Course Planner

The MyUCLA Class Planner is designed to help students formulate a study list for a term. It uses the same information and search features as the Schedule of Classes. Students can create a single plan or multiple plans and save each of them. The Class Planner is part of MyUCLA so students can easily enroll in classes. Students use MyUCLA for other enrollment functions such as drop, exchange sections, or change units or credit detail.

In the MyUCLA Future Course Planner, students can select up to five courses from tentative future course offerings. They then rank their preferences. This gives departments valuable information that helps them decide which courses are in most demand and which courses to offer in a future term. MyUCLA saves the choices and, if the courses are offered, displays them in the student’s Class Planner. Students can use the Class Optimizer to find possible schedules in the upcoming term.

Unit-Based Course Fees: IEI Fee

Many courses have a per-unit course materials fee, called the Instructional Enhancement Initiative (IEI) fee, that is assessed based on enrollment as of Friday of fourth week of the term. The fee supports the use of technology in undergraduate education at UCLA. See the IEI website for more details about what services the fee supports.

MyUCLA Enrollment

MyUCLA enables UCLA students to acquire information from their University academic records and to enroll in classes. Students can determine assigned appointment periods; enroll in classes; add, drop, exchange, or change the grading basis of classes; join a wait list; view and download Study Lists; and set up third-party views.

See the MyUCLA section for more information on services and features.

Enrollment Appointments

Enrollment appointments are based on class level and assigned within the time and dates shown on the appointment chart.

Current-term degree candidates must redeclare candidacy for a later term to receive enrollment appointment times for future terms.

Undergraduate Student Enrollment

A two-pass system is used for UCLA’s nearly 28,000 undergraduates to ensure that everyone has the opportunity to enroll in required premajor, major, and GE courses and to graduate.

Undergraduates eligible to enroll for the next term enroll during two randomly assigned appointments, which fall within pass periods that are prioritized as follows:

  1. Students in priority groups
  2. Seniors with 160 completed units who have declared candidacy to graduate within the next two terms
  3. Seniors with 160 or more units who have not declared candidacy
  4. New and re-entering students eligible for advance payment and/or enrollment
  5. Seniors with fewer than 160 units (135–159.9 units)
  6. Juniors with fewer than 135 units (90–134.9 units)
  7. Sophomores with fewer than 90 units (45–89.9 units)
  8. Freshmen with fewer than 45 units (0–44.9 units)

When determining class level, a student’s current term units are included and enrollment appointment times are assigned based on that projected classification. Projected class level is also used if course enrollment is restricted to a certain class level. Projected class level is displayed when a student checks his or her individual enrollment appointment times.

Students are not allowed to enroll before their specified time and are informed them of their correct appointment day and time.

Changes in the appointment sequence are made only to correct an appointment based on an incorrect class level. To request an appointment change, go to the Registrar's Office at 1113 Murphy Hall prior to the assigned appointment.

PRIORITY PASS. During their priority pass, students may only enroll in 10 units unless otherwise noted by their priority group. Students in a priority group who do not enroll during their priority pass appointment period must wait until their first pass appointment to enroll. Enrollment is not guaranteed during priority pass appointments.

Priority enrollment groups include Regents Scholars, athletes in NCAA sports, qualified veterans, and students served by the Office for Students with Disabilities. Sections are carefully monitored during each priority group pass to ensure that any one group does not exceed 30 percent and that all groups do not exceed 50 percent of a section’s spaces, in accordance with recommendations of a task force appointed by the Committee on Educational Policy.

NOTE: Priority pass students may only enroll in a total of 10 units during their priority and first passes.

FIRST PASS. During their first pass, students may only enroll in 10 units. This gives all undergraduates a better chance to obtain at least two courses needed toward graduation. Students who do not enroll during their first pass appointment period must wait until their second pass appointment to enroll.

SECOND PASS. During their second pass, students can add courses up to the maximum units allowed by their College or school. They can enroll from the beginning of the specified appointment day and time through midnight on Friday of the second week of classes, when wait lists are eliminated and Study Lists of enrolled courses become official. Students should be enrolled in courses with unit credit by that date to avoid paying the late Study List filing fee and obtaining instructor signatures and College/school approval on Enrollment Petitions (for more details, see "Official Study Lists").

After second pass appointments begin, undergraduates may

  1. Use a Permission to Enroll (PTE) number (see "Enrollment in Restricted Classes") to enroll in restricted or closed classes
  2. Submit approved petitions for contract courses
  3. Request enrollment in Passed/Not Passed (P/NP) courses over the eligible limit of units (a message is displayed if this applies)
  4. Submit approval for an excess unit Study List

Graduate Student Enrollment

Law, Medicine, and Dentistry students enroll as instructed by their respective Student Affairs Office.

All other graduate students eligible to enroll for the next term are randomly assigned one appointment time or pass and can enroll from the beginning of the specified appointment time through midnight on Friday of the second week of classes. Students should be enrolled in courses with unit credit by the deadline to avoid the late filing of Study List fee and to avoid having to obtain instructor signatures.

Study List Limits

Study list maximums are

College of Letters and Science 19 units
School of Engineering 21 units
School of Nursing 20 units
School of the Arts and Architecture 20 units
School of Theater, Film, and Television 19 units
   

To enroll in more units than the maximum allowed, see the appropriate College or school office to make an Excess Study List request.

Wait Lists

Wait lists are maintained through Friday of the second week of classes unless a department deletes them earlier. This may happen on the first day of classes for some sections, especially laboratories. Check the notes under the course listing in the Schedule of Classes. Students should not assume they will be added to a class or dropped from a class (if, for example, they are number one or number 100 on the wait list). Students must drop themselves before the official Study List deadline if they do not want the class.

A wait-list position within 10 percent of enrollment capacity (for example, number five for a class of 50) indicates a good chance of being enrolled. Many students drop classes after the first meeting, at which point other students may enroll in the class or advance on the wait list. Sometimes departments increase the enrollment capacity of the class, which automatically enrolls additional students from the wait list. Students should check wait-list status before Friday of the second week of classes.

Students may move backward on a wait list if a class is overenrolled through the use of PTE numbers. For example, a student who is first on the wait list for a course that has an enrollment capacity of 100 and is not overenrolled may move from position 101/100 to 105/100 if four students with PTE numbers enroll. The student cannot be enrolled until five people drop the course and the enrolled number is less than the enrollment capacity.

Enrollment in Restricted Classes

Students may enroll in a restricted class if they get a five-digit PTE number. A PTE number is issued at the discretion of the instructor or department offering the class. When used with the nine-digit course ID, it guarantees enrollment. Inquire at the respective departmental office regarding any internal department procedures for receiving a PTE number.

PTE numbers may be issued in the following cases:

  1. The department/instructor offering the class may authorize selective enrollment if the enrollment capacity is filled. This is at the instructor’s discretion and may only be approved based on criteria established by the instructor and/or department
  2. As an exception to published restrictions (consent of instructor, department consent, specified majors, class levels--freshmen only, juniors or above) in the Schedule of Classes
  3. Closed classes (enrollment capacity reached). When the enrollment capacity is reached, students may choose to be on a wait list. They are moved into the class as enrolled students drop out or if the department increases the enrollment capacity

If the instructor/department assigns a PTE number, use the link in the MyUCLA notice to enroll in the class. If the PTE is assigned manually, use the nine-digit course ID and PTE number to enroll.

Enforced Requisites

Undergraduate students are prevented from enrolling in lower division Letters and Science courses with enforced requisites (as listed in the UCLA General Catalog or the online Schedule of Classes) if those requisites have not been met. Some courses with requisites may be in warning status, which allows enrollment but informs students that the course requisite has not been met. In the Class Listings section, courses with enforced requisites are notated with a Y in the ENF REQ column, located after the course title.

Students with transfer or AP credit that was not evaluated as equivalent to a specific requisite should consult the department offering the course for review of the transfer or AP credit as shown on their DPR or Degree Audit Report. Decisions by the department concerning meeting requisites are final.

Impacted Courses

Courses that meet the criteria below and have been approved by the Faculty Executive Committee of the College or schools are designated as "impacted" courses.

  1. Meet once a week and are difficult to complete if a student has not attended by the end of the second week of classes
  2. Have high enrollment demand that deny qualified students enrollment because of limited resources
  3. Have high instructor/student ratios, and/or
  4. Involve large commitments of other resources

Each impacted course is clearly indicated in the Class Listings section by a Y in the IM (Impacted) column. In the online Schedule of Classes, the designation is listed under "Crs Info" or the "ID Number" that links to expanded information about a course.

A complete list of impacted courses is available on the impacted courses page.

Undergraduate students cannot drop an impacted course after Friday of the second week of a term for other than exceptionally extenuating circumstances as described in “Drop Procedures.”

Effective Summer 2013, courses designated as impacted during the regular academic year are also impacted during Summer Sessions. Summer impacted courses may be dropped on or before Friday of the first week with no transcript notation. Impacted courses dropped after the first week carry a transcript notation showing the week dropped.

Enrollment in Contract Courses

Students use MyUCLA to initiate a petition to enroll in a contract course. To start the process and obtain contract forms, students log in to MyUCLA, click on “Classes” from the mega-menu, then select “Contract Courses” in the “Classes and Exams” section. Contract forms are available for the following course numbers: Honors Contracts (89HC, 189HC), Student Research Program (99), USIE contracts (188SA, 188SB), and upper division tutorials (195-199). See the MyUCLA Contract Courses tutorial.

Each form is customized for a specific course number. Before filling out the form, students need to prepare a short description of the proposed course of study, the nature of the faculty supervision, and the type of tangible evidence of work completed that will be presented at the conclusion of the course. The name of the faculty mentor who is to supervise the course is also needed at the time the form is filled out. After this information is entered, print the form and obtain the necessary signatures.

For students pursuing an internship (course 195), consult with either a departmental adviser or the Center for Community Learning (A265 Murphy Hall) to determine which unit coordinates the internship. Internships coordinated through the Center for Community Learning require a site supervisor’s signature.

After obtaining the signatures of the instructor and the instructor’s department chair, students must check with the department of the course in which they are enrolling, or with their College or school, to confirm which of the following options to use to complete enrollment in the course:

  1. Through the department by leaving the form for processing
  2. Through the appropriate school by taking the form to
    1. 6426 Boelter Hall for the Henry Samueli School of Engineering and Applied Science
    2. 103 East Melnitz Building for the School of Theater, Film, and Television
    3. 2-137 Factor Building for the School of Nursing
  3. Through the Registrar’s Office by taking the form to 1113 Murphy Hall

Note: Students setting up contracts with instructors in one of the 19 School of Medicine departments must (1) obtain the instructor’s signature, (2) take the form to the instructor’s department where a staff person will obtain the chair’s (or chair designee’s) signature, and (3) bring the completed form to the Registrar’s Office for enrollment processing.

The deadline to enroll in a contract course without a fee is Friday of the second week of classes; to enroll with a fee, the deadline is Friday of the third week of classes.

Once a contract is processed, students can print out their Study List that serves as a record of enrollment.

Official Study Lists

A Study List is a record of all courses a student is enrolled in for a term. A registered student’s Study List of enrolled courses becomes official at midnight on Friday of the second week of classes and all wait lists are eliminated at that time.

Student Responsibility

Each student is responsible for all courses and the grading basis for each course, as listed on his or her Study List, and cannot receive credit for courses not listed. Errors or omissions should be corrected before the College or school deadline for changes by petition. Unapproved withdrawal from or neglect of a course entered on the Study List results in a failing grade. Enrollment deadlines end at midnight on the published date (see the appointment times chart and the Calendar section). Study Lists should be checked after all enrollment transactions.

In planning courses for a term, students are responsible for avoiding class conflicts and avoiding conflicting or multiple same-day final examinations. See “Final Examination Policies” in the Final Examinations section.

Study List Changes

Fees for adds and changes made on MyUCLA are automatically charged to a student’s BruinBill account on a per-transaction basis. Anything submitted or requested as an exception to a published deadline is subject to a penalty fee. Approved retroactive enrollment requests are assessed a per-transaction fee. See the Calendar section for deadlines and see “Miscellaneous Fees” in the Registration section for all course transaction fees.

Undergraduate Study List Changes

Undergraduate students can make changes to their Study List through Friday of the second week without a fee. After Friday of the second week, when the Study List becomes official, undergraduate students are charged a fee to make changes. The fees are assessed through BruinBill. See “Study List Changes.”

Undergraduate students changing units on a variable-unit class during third and fourth week are assessed a per-course change fee. After fourth week, students are assessed a per-course change fee plus a per-course penalty fee. After week four, College or school approval is required to make changes. See “Miscellaneous Fees” for fee information.

Drop a Course

Drop deadlines vary by College or school and the type of course (impacted or nonimpacted). See “Drop Procedures” and the drop reference chart below for more detailed information.

Note: Student athletes may not drop a class after the first day of class without their counselor's approval.

Change the Grading Basis of a Course

Undergraduate students changing the grading basis of an optionally graded course during weeks three through six are assessed a per-course change fee. Changes after Friday of sixth week require a petition; if approved, students are assessed a per-course change fee plus a per-course penalty fee. See “Changing Grading Basis” below for more detailed information; see “Miscellaneous Fees” for service fee information.

Graduate Study List Changes

Graduate students can add, drop, change grading basis, or change variable units through the end of the last day of instruction. Fees are assessed through BruinBill after Friday of second week. See “Study List Changes” above.

Graduate students are assessed a per-course change fee when adding a course during the third week. They are also assessed a per-course change fee when dropping a course, changing variable units, or changing grading basis through Friday of tenth week. The official graduate add deadline is Friday of third week. For courses added after this date, graduate students are assessed a per-course change fee plus a per-course penalty fee and the enrollments are not counted toward departmental budget allocations. A PTE number is required if the class is closed or restricted.

Late Study Lists

Registered students who are not officially enrolled in courses for credit as of Friday of the second week of instruction must file a late Study List. Use an Enrollment Petition, available online, for this process.

A fee is charged for filing a late Study List after Friday of the second week of instruction as described under “Late Payment” in the Registration section. See “Miscellaneous Fees” for fee information. Fees are assessed through BruinBill.

  1. Obtain the appropriate form: undergraduate students from the College or school advising unit; graduate students from a department adviser.
  2. Obtain the necessary signatures and file the approved form at the processing locations noted on the Enrollment Petition form. Students are given a receipt of the approved/processed Study List and are responsible for all courses and grading basis as recorded.

Registration fees must be paid in full in order to file a late Study List.

Drop Procedures

Dropping a course may reduce a Study List below minimums required for full-time status, financial aid, the minimum-progress requirement, and eligibility for residence halls and other services that require a specific enrollment status. The drop form reminds students about these requirements and the consequences that may be triggered if the petition is processed. It is each student's responsibility to meet enrollment unit requirements.

Dropping Nonimpacted Courses

Nonimpacted courses constitute the vast majority of courses and may be dropped on or before Friday of second week with no fee or transcript notation. Nonimpacted courses may be dropped during the third and fourth week with no transcript notation and a per-course change fee. Drops after Friday of fourth week are assessed a per-course change fee plus a per-course penalty fee. Drops after fourth week incur a transcript notation noting the week the class was dropped. See “Miscellaneous Fees” for fee information.

The drop periods for classes vary by College or school. See the drop reference chart later in this section.

Students in the College of Letters and Science can drop nonimpacted courses without a transcript notation through Friday of fourth week. In weeks five through seven, students in the College can drop courses without an instructor’s signature. During weeks eight through ten, students are restricted to three approved drops in their academic career. For drops after seventh week, an instructor’s signature and College approval is required.

Students in the Henry Samueli School of Engineering, the School of the Arts and Architecture, and the School of Theater, Film, and Television can drop courses without a transcript notation through Friday of fourth week. After fourth week, they must obtain a drop petition from their academic deans’ office.

Dropping Impacted Courses

In Fall, Winter, and Spring quarters, impacted courses may be dropped on or before Friday of second week with no fee or transcript notation. In Summer Sessions, impacted courses may be dropped on or before Friday of the first week with no transcript notation. Each impacted course is indicated by a Y in the IM (impacted) column in the class listings of the PDF Schedule of Classes, and on the expanded course detail screen of the online Schedule of Classes.

Impacted Course Drop Policy

After Friday of second week in Fall, Winter, and Spring quarters, and after Friday of first week in Summer Sessions, undergraduate students who need to request a drop of an impacted course should consult the course instructor and explore academic options other than dropping the course. Impacted courses may be dropped after these deadlines only under extraordinary circumstances (such as severe illness).

To drop an impacted course, undergraduate students should obtain a Late Impacted Course Drop Petition or Retroactive Drop Petition form from their counseling unit:

  • College AAP students, 1209 Campbell Hall
  • College athletes, Morgan Center
  • College honors students, A311 Murphy Hall
  • All other College students, A316 Murphy Hall
  • Henry Samueli School of Engineering and Applied Science, 6426 Boelter Hall
  • School of Arts and Architecture, 2200 Broad Art Center
  • School of Theater, Film, and Television students, 103 East Melnitz Building
  • School of Nursing, 2-137 Factor Building

Non-UCLA summer-only students are subject to the same drop policy. To drop an impacted course after Friday of first week, non-UCLA summer-only students must complete a Summer Sessions Student Update Form and submit the request to the Summer Sessions Office, 1332 Murphy Hall.

Follow the instructions on the form. A detailed explanation of the reason for dropping the course must be given, and the course instructor’s signature must be obtained.

For College of Letters and Science students, requests to drop an impacted course are referred by College counseling units to a subcommittee of the Faculty Executive Committee. For School of Engineering students, requests are submitted to the Associate Dean. If the request is approved, the dropped course appears on the student’s transcript with a notation indicating the date and week of the term in which the drop petition was filed. In Fall, Winter, and Spring quarters, the late drop fee is assessed.

Changing Grading Basis

Courses with Optional Grading Basis

Courses with an optional grading basis allow students (not instructors) to choose either a Letter grade or a Passed/Not Passed grade (for undergraduates) or Satisfactory/Not Satisfactory grade (for graduate students). In MyUCLA and the Schedule of Classes, the grade or type for classes with an optional grading basis is displayed as SO (Student Option)--which appears in the grade type column. The default grading basis for such classes is LG (Letter Grade).

Undergraduate students in good academic standing can change the grading basis on these courses through MyUCLA. The deadline for undergraduates to make changes is Friday of sixth week. Graduate students can make changes through the last day of instruction. In the online Schedule of Classes, on the class listing page, click on “Crs Info” to determine if a course has optional grading, or see the course description in the Catalog.

Courses with Mandatory Grading Basis

Courses with a mandatory (nonoptional) grading basis (e.g., Letter Grade only, Passed/Not Passed, Satisfactory/Not Satisfactory) are designated LG, PN, or SU in MyUCLA. Undergraduate students in good academic standing must petition to request a change in grading basis for these courses. The deadline for undergraduates to petition for change is Friday of sixth week. Graduate students can petition for change through the last day of instruction.

  1. Using a Student Petition form, obtain approval to change grading basis from the department offering the class.
  2. If departmental approval is granted, file the petition with the College or school counseling unit if you are an undergraduate student or with Graduate Division if you are a graduate student.
  3. If the request is approved by the College, school, or Graduate Division, the petition is sent to the Registrar's Office, and the change in grading basis is recorded on the Study List.

(Engineering students at 6426 Boelter Hall; Letters and Science honors students at Honors Programs, A311 Murphy Hall; AAP students at AAP Counseling, 1209 Campbell Hall; athletes at the Morgan Center; all other Letters and Science students at College Academic Counseling, A316 Murphy Hall; Schools of Arts and Architecture, Theater, Film, and Television, and Nursing at their respective student affairs offices).

Special Programs Enrollment

Concurrent Enrollment

Concurrent enrollment--defined as taking courses during regular sessions (Fall, Winter, and Spring quarters) for credit at UCLA and, at the same time, at another non-UC institution, including UCLA Extension--is not permitted except in extraordinary circumstances, and no credit is given for such courses unless the approval of the UCLA College or school has been obtained by petition prior to enrollment.

Intersegmental Cross-Enrollment

At the discretion of the appropriate campus authorities on both campuses, the California Education Code allows undergraduate students enrolled in any campus of the California community colleges, the California State University, or the University of California to enroll without formal admission in a maximum of one course per academic term at a campus of either of the other systems on a space-available basis. Enrollment in precollege courses is excluded.

UCLA students qualify for intersegmental cross-enrollment if they meet all the following requirements:

  1. Complete at least one term at UCLA as a matriculated student
  2. Enroll for a minimum of 6 units for the current term
  3. Earn a grade-point average of 2.0 (C) for work completed
  4. Pay appropriate registration fees at UCLA for the current term
  5. Complete appropriate academic preparation as determined by the host campus
  6. Have California resident status

Obtain a concurrent enrollment application from the College or school. An administration fee is charged for each academic term such enrollment is requested.

Intercampus Visitor Program

Undergraduates enrolled at one campus of the University of California may have the opportunity to attend another UC campus for one quarter or semester on the Intercampus Visitor Program. UCLA students can obtain the UC Intercampus Visitor Program Application online. Observe the deadlines on the application. Applications are reviewed by a student’s College or school. Letters and Science students should contact College Academic Counseling in A316 Murphy Hall; Arts and Architecture students should contact the Student Services Office in 2200 Broad Art Center; Theater, Film, and Television students should contact the Student Services Office in 103 East Melnitz Building; Engineering students should contact the Student Services Office in 6426 Boelter Hall.

Simultaneous UC Enrollment

Undergraduate students may enroll simultaneously in courses offered by another UC campus. Eligible students must be registered (fees paid), in good standing, and enrolled in at least 12 units at UCLA. Students may simultaneously enroll in no more than one UC host-campus course not to exceed 6 units. Before attending the host campus, both campuses must give approval. Approval to enroll simultaneously on another UC campus does not guarantee credit toward specific degree or General Education requirements. Application of host-campus courses to UCLA graduation requirements is determined by the College or school. Details are on the application form. Obtain applications and directions for submitting forms from the following offices: honors students, A311 Murphy Hall; student athletes, Morgan Center; AAP students, 1209 Campbell Hall; all other Letters and Science students, College Academic Counseling, A316 Murphy Hall; Arts and Architecture, Theater, Film, and Television, Engineering and Applied Science, and Nursing students, their respective student affairs offices. The form is also available online.

UC Online Courses Pilot

In Spring Quarter 2014, the University of California continues a pilot series of online courses offered by various UC campuses. Eligible UC undergraduate students can enroll simultaneously in another UC’s online course. Add/drop dates vary by campus and by the quarter/semester calendar. No additional tuition is assessed; however, other fees may apply depending on the course. Course credit is calculated in a student’s UC GPA. Students should meet with their adviser before enrolling to confirm course applicability toward their degree. For eligibility requirements, course information, and tentative course listings, see the UC Online Pilot Cross-Campus Course Offerings list. For UCLA drop policies, see the Drop Reference Chart above.
