College of Letters & Science information on enrollment

  • Check your Degree Audit or MyUCLA (Academics -> Academic Profile -> Holds) to see if you have any holds on your record that will prevent enrollment, and take steps to remove the hold now.
  • You may enroll in up to 10 units during priority/first enrollment, and 9 units in your second pass, for a total of 19 units.
    • Use your first pass to enroll in courses that are in high demand, required, or are likely to fill quickly, such as core courses, labs, foreign language, and popular GEs.
    • Use Class Planner to see create potential schedules and enroll.
    • When selecting classes, please be sure to check how they will be offered. There are 3 types of online classes: Online, Online – Recorded, and Online – Asynchronous.  Please note that “Online” classes are not recorded.  You can use the Search Criteria function to search for specific modes if your schedule requires it.
      • Online: Classes will be held at scheduled times with faculty delivering course content using remote communication tools and students in attendance using those tools. Faculty will not record the class.
      • Online – Recorded: Classes will be held at scheduled times with faculty delivering course content using remote communication tools and with students in attendance using those tools. Faculty will record the class and make available those scheduled activities for subsequent use by students. However, students should be aware that faculty may still request their participation during scheduled meeting times.
      • Online – Asynchronous: With the exception of office hours or review sections, there are no pre-scheduled sessions for this class. Lectures and all class content will be available online.
    • If you have a 3.0 cumulative and current GPA in 15 units, you will automatically be granted up to 22 units after the first day of the quarter. (Please note that this policy is tentative and subject to change.)
      • If you are not automatically eligible, you may submit a petition requesting excess units
      • Please check MyUCLA to see how many units you have been granted before submitting a petition.
    • Be sure to check the pre-requisites and course restrictions. Some pre-requisites are required and enforced.  Some courses are restricted to students in particular majors or with a particular class standing (e.g., juniors and seniors only).
      • If you are currently in a pre-major, check your Degree Audit to see if you are eligible to be admitted to the major and/or consult with your department. Please note that some courses are restricted to students in the major, so if you are still in the pre-major, you are not eligible until you are admitted into the major itself, or the restriction is removed.  Some majors only allow admission at specific times of the year or through specific processes, so be sure you are aware of any restrictions and procedures for declaring the major.
      • Please remember all upper-division political science courses are reserved for political science majors during the first enrollment pass. All of these courses will open up to all students during the second enrollment pass. Please know that you are eligible to update your major from pre-political science to political science if you have completed all lower-division pre-requisite requirements for the major or in the term you are enrolled in the last lower division preparation course. You can officially declare as a political science major here. Please only declare if you have met all of the requirements above.
