Cross-Enrollment

The Navigator 2012-14

The Cross Enrollment Program permits UCSC students who meet certain eligibility criteria to enroll in one course on a space-available basis each quarter or semester at a California community college or California State University campus. The host campus may charge an administrative fee each quarter, and you must reapply each quarter you wish to cross-enroll at another campus.

Note: Not all community colleges and California State University campuses participate in the Cross Enrollment Program; contact the institution at which you wish to enroll for information.

Eligibility criteria are as follows:

  • completion of at least one regular term at UCSC (fall, winter, or spring) as a matriculated student;

  • enrollment in at least six credits at UCSC in the term of cross-enrollment;

  • attainment of good academic standing;

  • classification as a California resident for tuition purposes;

  • payment of the appropriate registration fees at UCSC; and

  • completion of the appropriate academic preparation, as determined by the host campus.

Cross-enrolling at another institution may have implications for academic standing and eligibility for financial aid. Check with your college and financial aid advisers.

To be awarded transfer credit for work completed elsewhere, you must arrange for a transcript to be sent to:
