If you are regularly enrolled at UCSC, you may receive credit toward graduation for certain university extension courses. Courses numbered 1 to 199 are acceptable for transfer credit. The extension courses you wish to transfer will be reviewed to determine if they duplicate courses for which you have already received credit. The 300 and 400 series are professional courses and are not acceptable for transfer.

In order to have a course numbered 1 to 199 evaluated and the credit added to your UCSC record, request that an official transcript of your completed coursework be sent to the UCSC Office of the Registrar. You must have the approval of the chair of your department to use an extension course to satisfy major or minor requirements.

The Concurrent Enrollment Program enables qualified people to take regular UCSC courses through UCSC Extension. UCSC students are not eligible for concurrent enrollment except to complete up to five credits toward graduation (if an extension course requires an additional laboratory class, you may receive credit for the lab as well); you will not receive credit for courses taken through concurrent enrollment otherwise. See Completion of 180 credits or call 831-427-6606. Effective winter 2009, courses taken through concurrent enrollment will be included in your UCSC GPA.

Extension courses are not usually acceptable for financial aid purposes. Check with the Financial Aid and Scholarship Office about your particular situation.

Particular certificate programs within UCSC Extension have been certified for Workforce Investment Act (WIA) funding. Contact Michael Mrache at mfmrache@ucsc-extension.edu for further information related to WIA funding and UCSC Extension.
