Members of the public are offered the opportunity to take regular session UCLA regular session daytime courses in Fall, Winter, and Spring quarters on a limited basis through UCLA Extension’s Concurrent Enrollment program.

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.

Concurrent Course Designations

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.

Approval Requirements

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.
