Concurrent and Cross-Enrollment Programs

UCLA Concurrent Enrollment

Student in yellow sweater

Members of the public (18 yrs or older) may take UCLA regular session daytime courses in Fall, Winter, and Spring quarters on a limited basis through UCLA Extension’s Concurrent Enrollment program.

Once all matriculated UCLA students have been enrolled in their courses, UCLA Extension students may pursue concurrent enrollment if space is available, and the instructor/department consents.

For more detail, download the Concurrent Enrollment brochure (pdf).

Inquiries regarding UCLA admissions and transfer policies should be directed to the UCLA Undergraduate Admissions Office.

With instructor approval, you can enroll for classes in all Departments that are not listed as exempt on the Approval Requirements for Concurrent Enrollment (PDF).

Undergraduate Classes (XLC 1 to XLC 199)

Transferable for unit, subject credit, and grade-point average (GPA) in the College of Letters and Sciences at UCLA.

Graduate and Professional Classes (XLC 200–299 and XLC 400–499)

Units earned will not provide advanced standing to students who are subsequently admitted to advanced degree programs through UCLA’s Graduate Division. Certain course requirements for advanced degrees may be waived, but only with the approval of the Graduate Division on the recommendation of the student’s program department at the time of admission.

Doctoral-level Seminars (XLC 500–599)

Subject to various approvals, which can take approximately eight weeks. For requirements, contact the UCLA Extension Dean’s Office.

Several Departments and Schools require a co-signature or authorization by someone other than the instructor in all cases.

If the Department for the Course/Subject Area you have selected is not on this list, and does not require secondary approval, you will be required to get only the instructor approval.

Note: Courses numbered 89HC, 99, 189HC, 195, 197, 198, or 199 require completion of a course contract and approval of the faculty member. Upper-division tutorials (Courses 195-199) require an additional approval from the department chair. Research tutorials in engineering, medicine, life sciences, and physical sciences also require completion of the Environmental Health & Safety (EH&S) class Laboratory Safety Fundamental Concepts. Certificate of completion will be required at the time of enrollment. 
 
Accommodations in relation to Accessibility and Disability Services should be made through the UCLA Center for Accessible Education (CAE) for all UCLA courses.

 

What is the Registration process like?

First, submit a Concurrent Enrollment Application. Second, complete the official DocuSign Registration form.

After the initial Application, if the course requested is eligible for Concurrent Enrollment, you will receive an email with a digital copy of the appropriate Concurrent Enrollment Registration form via DocuSign. But if the course is unavailable, students will receive an email notification denying the Application. Please allow 2-3 business days for a response.

What are the registration fees, dates and deadlines?

Students have until the end of the 3rd week to finalize enrollment. Review the brochure for dates, deadlines and course fees. If payment is not received, the student will be dropped from the course.

How do I make Payment?

Once the DocuSign form has been completed, the Concurrent Enrollment application in your student portal will be updated from Under Review to Approved and payment instructions will be sent via email. Payment can be made online, over the phone, or in person.

Note: Students are responsible for making a payment on time. If you do not receive instructions, check your spam/junk folder and follow up with Concurrent Enrollment staff prior to the enrollment deadline.

Please allow 2-3 business days for payment instructions to be sent after the DocuSign form has been completed.

What if my Payment isn't made by the enrollment deadline?

If you’re not approved or payment is not received prior to the end of the 3rd week, students are dropped and lose access to course materials. Participation past this date is unavailable, unless an exception has been made by the Department.

How can I be sure I’m Registered?

Registration is only complete when payment has been received. An email confirmation receipt will be sent automatically which can be used as proof of Registration/Enrollment. Students can only make payment once the DocuSign Registration form has been completed and the application has been marked approved. If your DocuSign Registration form is not completed, follow up with your instructor and or department as approval is contingent on their signature. 

What do I do if the DocuSign form is incomplete?

If the form has been submitted but is incomplete, please follow up with the Instructor or Department accordingly for approval signature(s).

What is my Application status?

You can check the status of your application by logging into your UCLA Extension Student Portal. The application progress can be tracked in My Applications and will show one of the following states:

  • In Progress
  • Submitted
  • Under Review
  • Approved -or- Denied

Approval considers the DocuSign form has been completed. Be sure to check your spam/junk folder for communication.

How do I access course materials?

You will create a UCLA Logon and access course materials via Bruin Learn. Bruin Learn, UCLA's learning management system, utilizes Canvas just like UCLA Extension. However, the platforms are different. You will access UCLA courses under one Bruin Learn/Canvas account and UCLA Extension courses under a separate Canvas account.

Step 1: Set up a UCLA Logon:

To access Bruin Learn you must use your UID number and create a UCLA logon ID first. To do so, visit the identity and accounts manager.

Step 2: Access Course Material:

Once your UCLA logon is created, simply visit Bruin Learn and log in using the new credentials you created. Go through the authentication process and view course materials via Canvas.

Returning students simply use their initial logon to access Bruin Learn.

Note: Not all courses have a course website under the Bruin Learn platform. Some courses will still require CCLE Social Sciences/Shared System to access course materials.

You may reference the last page of the Concurrent Enrollment brochure for additional details.

If you have trouble logging in or issues with setting up your UCLA/Bruin Learn account, contact the UCLA IT Services team.

 

Grades and transcripts

Instructors will submit grades for UCLA Extension students just as they do for regular UCLA Students. However, all records are kept with UCLA Extension. Please allow 2 weeks for grades to finalize with student records. If you have any concerns, please reach out to the Concurrent Enrollment staff for support.

All UCLA Extension Concurrent Enrollment students are required to provide proof of vaccine and COVID-19 boosters (when eligible), or request an exception.
