Your study list refers to the courses in which you are enrolled for the term. You can obtain a copy of your study list by logging onto URSA Online. You are advised to check your study list during the second week of each quarter to confirm your enrollment (checking during second week will give you time to add or drop a course by the appropriate deadline: end of 2nd week to drop an impacted course; end of 3rd week to add a course; end of 4th week to drop a non-impacted course). Being on the wait list does NOT guarantee enrollment. In case you are still on the wait list for any course at the end of 2nd week, you need to have a back-up plan!
Units earned this way count toward degree requirements, but do not affect your GPA. You may choose the P/NP grading option for one course per term, but only in courses that qualify as GE or upper division credit in humanities or social sciences. All prep and major courses must be taken for a letter grade.
Certain courses that are always in high demand have impacted status, which means that they cannot be dropped beyond the end of the 2nd week of the quarter. Each impacted course is clearly indicated in the class listing section of the Schedule of Classes. Click on the "Crs Info" link and look at "Impacted Course: Yes (or No)." A comprehensive list of impacted UCLA courses can also be viewed at: http://www.registrar.ucla.edu/soc/impact.htm.
You can drop an impacted class through URSA until the Friday of 2nd week. However, from third to tenth week, you must obtain a pink impacted course drop petition from College Academic Counseling, AAP, Athletics, or Honors. Requests to drop an impacted course after second week are rarely approved.
A requisite or pre-requisite is a required course that must be completed prior to taking the course for which it is a requisite. For example, Life Sciences 2 has a pre-requisite of Chem 14A or Chem 20A (general chemistry). Therefore, you must complete Chem 14A or Chem 20A before you take LS 2. A co-requisite is a course that can be taken concurrently with or prior to taking the course for which it is a co-requisite. For example, Physics 6A has Math 3C or Math 32A as a co-requisite. Therefore, you must complete Math 3C or Math 32A before enrolling in Physics 6A OR take Math 3C or Math 32A and Physics 6A in the same quarter.
To "drop a course" means to dis-enroll from one (or more) specific course(s), while continuing to attend others. If you are just dropping one or two of your classes for the quarter, not all of them, that's considered a drop, not a withdrawal. To "withdraw" means to discontinue attendance for ALL courses in which you are enrolled. Withdrawal requests are subject to review and approval by the UCLA College.
For students who repeat a total of 16 units or less, only the most recently earned letter grades and grade points will be computed in your GPA. In other words, the grade you earn the second time replaces the first grade, with regard to calculating your GPA (however, that first grade WILL still appear on your transcript). Beyond 16 units, however, your GPA will be based on all letter grades assigned and total units attempted. The grade assigned each time you take a course will be permanently recorded on your transcript.
In order to change majors, you must meet all the qualifications of the major that you wish to declare (e.g., GPA requirements), have completed one full quarter at UCLA, and have a UCLA GPA. Once you have done this, see a departmental counselor for the major and they can assist you.
During a regular quarter of enrollment, you are required to be enrolled in a minimum of 13 units. You will also be required to meet Cumulative Progress expectations. ECP will be calculated every other quarter. Units earned during a summer session at UCLA or at another accredited school and transferred to UCLA shall be counted toward expected cumulative progress. However, these units may not be used to offset the minimum 13 units per quarter requirement. NOTE: Transfer students should see a college counselor with questions about the application of transfer units to ECP.
There is no official part-time status at UCLA. However, there is a Fee Reduction program, which you can petition for through your counseling unit. It must be done for three regular quarters and you must be enrolled in ten or fewer units each quarter. This can be requested on the basis of family responsibility, employment commitments, and/or health reasons. See College Academic Counseling (A-316 Murphy), AAP, Honors, or Athletics for these requests. Be advised that this may affect your Financial Aid status. See the Financial Aid Office for more information.
No, this is considered "concurrent enrollment" as defined by the UCLA College. Only under rare circumstances and by special petition through the UCLA College are regularly enrolled UCLA students permitted to attend another institution apart from UCLA during the academic year.
UCLA College Academic Counseling does not generally permit this; however, you may submit a petition under extenuating circumstances. Please keep in mind that these requests are rarely approved. The term "concurrent enrollment" should not be confused with the term "concurrent enrollment" that Extension uses to describe enrollment in regularly offered UCLA courses. If concurrent enrollment has been approved in advance, you may take regular UCLA classes through UCLA Extension. However, this is up to the instructor, on a space-available basis. You should see the instructor at the first meeting of the class. For information, you can call the Extension Office at x57093.
This can be a good option, but remember that you are affected by two rules. One is that once you've accrued 105 units from any school or college, you receive no units for community college work. (If you go over that, you could get subject credit toward your DPR, but not unit credit.). Also, you must take 35 of the last 45 units toward your degree at UCLA (the Residency Rule). Remember you can't transfer in upper division units from a community college. Always check first to make sure that the course you plan to take will transfer to UCLA as what you need, prior to taking the course. The grades won't transfer in (grades only transfer from other UC's).
This is usually fine, but watch out for the Residency Rule (see above). Again, check first to make sure that the course will transfer for what you need. The grade DOES transfer from other UC's (the only circumstance in which it does).
Whether or not EAP courses will apply towards your major is up to your department, and may depend on which country you plan on going to. It's best to check with your departmental counselor before you begin the EAP application process.
