Updated June 10th, 2021
Currently, the CSE building is closed to general use by faculty, staff, and students due to the COVID 19 pandemic. Only those people included in approved research plans and those teaching in person can be in the building. For further information, please see UCSD's Return to Learn website.
COVID-19 Update: We want to let you know that our CSE advisors are still here for you when you need us. However, to ensure we are doing our part to "flatten the curve" and keep you and our staff safe during this global pandemic, we are moving to remote advising until further notice. Current students may contact us via the Virtual Advising Center (vac.ucsd.edu) or firstname.lastname@example.org. We are still offering advising appointments which can be conducted via Zoom videoconference or phone. To schedule an appointment, please email email@example.com.

** Enrollment information** We have released the maximum number of seats without the additional support for our summer instructors as of June 10th. If we can find/hire qualified TA's or tutors to assist our summer instructors and accommodate additional students, we will release those seats as soon as possible. Please feel free to monitor this webpage for additional information.
We do NOT anticipate adding any additional courses/sections to our Summer 2021 course offerings regardless of waitlist size.
Additional enrollment notes:
Due to the high demand for CSE courses, enrolling in CSE courses can be difficult and confusing. Please read the following page in detail. The courses listed on the Schedule of Classes are the courses/sections we intend to offer in Summer 2021. The capacity in each course is determined by multiple variables (not just the classroom size), including but not limited to:
- Classroom size availability
- Instructor availability
- Instructor teaching load
- Instructional support availability (TA/tutor support)
- Scalability of the course
- Late Add Policy
The CSE department does not allow students to add courses past week 1.
Students who add CSE courses during the first week will not be allowed to make-up missed assignments. If you are on the waitlist for a course, you are expected to attend the class for the first week and complete assignments. If students choose not to attend class or to not turn in assignments on due dates, the student will receive a "0" on all missed assignments/quizzes/etc. No exceptions are made.
- Waitlist Policy
- There is no major priority for CSE courses in the summer. All undergraduate students should expect to be enrolled in courses in waitlist order only. However, undergraduates do have priority to add undergraduate courses
- Students will only be added to courses with waitlists in waitlist order via the automatic waitlist enrollment process. The last waitlist runs on the Thursday evening of week 1 of classes. The CSE department will not manually clear any students to enroll even if space becomes available on the last day of enrollment (Friday of week 1 of the session).
- The system will add waitlisted students to the course LMS (Canvas) if waitlisted, but this is not a guarantee for a seat in the course. Only students who are officially enrolled via WebReg are officially enrolled in the course.
- Waitlisted students will be dropped from the Canvas course platform by the start of week 2 of the session.
IMPORTANT NOTE: If a student is waitlisted for a course in summer and enrolled in the same course for Fall or another Summer session, the system will drop you from the summer session waitlist if a seat becomes available because it recognizes you are already enrolled in the course. We will not clear students to add to the course in these situations as the system moves on and automatically adds the next eligible student on the waitlist.
- Enrollment/Course Policies
- Prerequisites are enforced for ALL classes.
- For course clearances, please use the Enrollment Authorization System (EASy). These may take 5 business days to be processed, so please plan accordingly.
- Sorry, no swaps. Be sure to enroll or waitlist in the section with the assigned time you will attend and assigned the final exam you can attend. Due to the high demand for CSE classes, the large volume of requests, and limited staff resources, the CSE department does NOT allow students to swap sections, even if they find another student who is willing to swap with them. No exceptions.
- We do not release names of instructors until their appointments are official with the University. Once official, instructor names are posted on the Schedule of Classes and WebReg
- For UCSD students: if you need to petition a course for CSE transfer credit, please use our ONLINE PETITION to do so.
- Non-CSE Majors
Non-CSE Undergraduates who want to enroll in CSE Major restricted courses should submit an enrollment request through Enrollment Authorization System (EASy). CSE Major restricted courses are noted with an asterisk (*) next to the course number in the chart below.
Requests from non-CSE major undergraduate students to be cleared to enroll in major restricted courses may take 5 business days, please plan accordingly.
- Non-CSE Courses
Each department handles course clearances for their own courses. Please contact the respective department for course clearance to ECE, COGS, MGT, etc.
- Summer Session Important dates
Please see the Summer Session 2021 Key Dates webpage for a complete list of academic deadlines.

- Graduate Students
Graduate students who wish to add undergraduate courses please submit a request through the Enrollment Authorization System (EASy). Prerequisite clearances and approvals to add will be reviewed at the start of week one of classes based on if there is seat availability after undergraduates enroll.
