UC Online Courses

The University of California offers a series of online courses hosted by various UC campuses. Eligible UC undergraduate students can enroll simultaneously in an online course offered by another UC. 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 grade-point average. 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 Undergraduate Drop Reference tables in the Enrollment section.

Distance Learning at UCLA

Distance learning courses offered through UCLA connect students and faculty through live real-time interaction to sites outside UCLA, including other universities and institutions around the world. Through the use of videoconference technology, participants at both sites can see and hear each other, and multisite conferencing is available to enable students at three or four different locations to take the same course together.

Distance learning courses and videoconferencing can take place wherever there is a network connection to the Internet, which includes 80 percent of general assignment classrooms at UCLA. In addition, there are facilities on campus dedicated for use as distance learning classrooms and for videoconferencing.

For more information, contact Don Roby at (310) 206-7449 or send e-mail to For further information about the classrooms that have Internet connectivity, see the Office of Instructional Development classroom list. For course ID numbers, times, and locations, see the appropriate department and course listing section of the Schedule of Classes.

At press time, no distance learning courses are scheduled for Spring Quarter 2016.

Distance Learning for Less-Commonly Taught Languages

In order to make the most of language resources available at the University of California campuses, the UC Consortium for Language Learning and Teaching encourages the use of distance learning to promote access to the less commonly taught languages. Through UC Simultaneous Enrollment, students can enroll in language courses that use videoconferencing to bring students and faculty members from different campuses together.

Other UC Campuses Incoming Videoconferencing Courses

In 2015-16, UC Berkeley is offering language courses in beginning Finnish and intermediate Khmer via videoconference. Each class session is transmitted via Internet videoconferencing to UCLA so that students at UCLA can participate and interact in real time with students in the UCB classroom. UCLA videoconferencing sessions are held in the Instructional Media Laboratory, 270 Powell Library Building.

UCLA undergraduate students can request enrollment in the UCB classes using the Simultaneous UC Enrollment Undergraduate Application. Applications are available online or from the student affairs advising offices in the College and schools. Graduate students may enroll through the Intercampus Exchange Program; applications are available online. Grades and units are entered as transfer credit from UCB.

Students interested in the classes should consult the UC Berkeley Schedule of Classes.
