Enrolling in Courses

The quarterly Schedule of Classes and the Class Search provides the appointment schedule for priority enrollment, the courses and their class numbers, descriptions of courses offered, and instructions on how to access MyUCSC. Schedules are available online approximately five weeks into the preceding quarter. Review the courses to be offered for the upcoming quarter and meet with an adviser from your college or major if you need assistance in selecting courses. You should choose several alternate courses in case one of the courses you want is not available.

The UCSC General Catalog gives detailed descriptions of major requirements and each course, including general education requirements, prerequisites, restrictions, and enrollment limitations. Prerequisites are designed to ensure you have the level of experience needed to successfully complete a course.

The university makes every effort to offer the courses listed in the UCSC General Catalog and the Schedule of Classes ; however, changes may occur after publication. For updated scheduling information, as well as cancelled or newly added classes, visit the online Schedule of Classes .

Read your quarterly Schedule of Classes for complete instructions on how to enroll via MyUCSC, complete a schedule planner worksheet, and review related information (who is eligible to advance enroll, how to obtain a permission number, secondary sections/laboratories, and help with technical difficulties). The Schedule of Classes also includes the Academic and Administrative Calendar for the campus, a campus map, fee information, and useful links.
