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 at the end of the previous quarter, you will automatically be granted up to 22 units after the first day of the current quarter. (Please note that the previous quarter’s grades are sometimes not due until the current quarter begins, so students may not be eligible until after that if grades are not posted earlier.)
If you are not automatically eligible, you may submit a petition requesting excess units during the first week of the quarter.
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.
Meet with an academic advisor in your School/College/Department to ensure you know what you need to take or if you have any questions about your program plan. If you’re not sure who your advising unit is, check the upper right corner of your Degree Audit for this information.
Note that advising is extremely busy during enrollment, and appointments may be scarce, wait times may be long, and email and messages may take longer to receive a response. Please be patient and know that your advisors are working extremely hard during this time.
