Concurrent Enrollment for CSE Courses
Concurrent Enrollment through UC San Diego Extension provides the opportunity for those who are not registered UC San Diego students to enroll in CSE courses. You must register with UC San Diego Extension to participate in Concurrent Enrollment.
Policies for Winter Quarter 2018
Follow the procedures for Winter Quarter 2018. Failing to do so will jeopardize a Concurrent Enrollment Student’s opportunity to take CSE Courses at UC San Diego. Read the procedures carefully!
Concurrent Enrollment is not guaranteed. Concurrent Enrollment Students are allowed to add CSE Courses after all registered UC San Diego students have been accommodated. Although we do our best to accommodate Concurrent Enrollment Students, CSE Courses are in high demand. It is possible a that Concurrent Enrollment Student will be unable to enroll in any CSE Courses.
Concurrent Enrollment approvals are contingent upon class attendance. Concurrent Enrollment Students will not be approved to enroll in CSE Courses they are not attending.
Concurrent Enrollment approvals will be based on: space availability, wait list order (e.g., when students turned in the Concurrent Enrollment Add Form), and a review of Concurrent Enrollment Student requests, in order to try to place each student into at least one course.
A maximum of 4 courses per Concurrent Enrollment Student will be approved. If students are offered a spot in a fifth class, they will have to drop one of the other courses they were approved to add. However, due to high demand for CSE Courses, students should not expect to be offered more than 1-2 course approvals.
No Concurrent Enrollments are approved for CSE Courses after Friday, January 19. ***Some lower division CSE Courses close earlier*** Please see the CSE Winter 2018 Course Updates for the latest status. Be sure to also review UC San Diego Extension's policies and procedures. If there are later deadlines on that site, the CSE deadlines apply.
