Cross-Campus or Simultaneous Enrollment with Other University of California Campuses

Undergraduate students enrolled at UCSC may enroll, without formal admission and without payment of additional university fees, in courses at another UC campus on a space-available basis at the discretion of the appropriate campus authorities on both campuses. Simultaneous enrollment refers to UC courses not offered through UC Online. Additional information about online UC courses is available through UC Online.

Currently registered students must meet all of the following requirements to be eligible to enroll in one class through the Cross-Campus and Simultaneous Enrollment Programs: completion of a minimum of 12 credits at UCSC as a matriculated student,  be in good academic standing, and demonstrate appropriate academic preparation as determined by the host campus. Full-time students must be enrolled in at least ten credits at UCSC. University Part-Time students must be enrolled in at least five credits at UCSC and may enroll in up to ten credits total.

Information about Cross-Campus Enrollment is available through UC Online. Applications for Simultaneous Enrollment are available at the Office of the Registrar, 190 Hahn Student Services Building or online. For more information, call (831) 459-4412 or e-mail sp-regis@ucsc.edu, or visit the Web at Simultaneous Enrollment.
