Concurrent Enrollment

Concurrent enrollment will allow individuals to take undergraduate level courses at UCSD without having to go through the traditional admissions process.

Enrollment Process

  1. Review the concurrent enrollment deadlines and eligibility requirements 
  2. Review the biology course(s) available on the Schedule of Classes. Be sure you have completed the prerequisites of the courses in which you are interested.
  3. Pick up or print out a concurrent add form and take it to the first class meeting. Add forms are available at the UC San Diego Extension Student Services office. Obtain the instructor’s signature on the concurrent enrollment add card.  Please note that instructors are not required to admit you to the course, and that enrollment is on a space-available basis. 
  4. If you have a signed add card, take it to Biology Student and Instructional Services for a department stamp. Stamps are available during the third week of the quarter. Space in the course will be verified at this time. Please note that even if the instructor has signed the add card, if space is not available, the card will not be stamped. 
  5. Return your completed UC San Diego concurrent enrollment card to the Extension Student Services office with your enrollment fee. Submit one card per class. Concurrent enrollment is closed after the third week of the quarter.
