Only Taking A Class or Two?

Students can take classes at UC without being enrolled in a UC degree program. This status is officially called "non-matriculated," which is a traditional academic term meaning "not enrolled in a degree program."

Before you register for classes, you must complete the Basic Data Form. This form enables the UC Registrar to update or create your student record. After you submit the Basic Data Form, it will take a day or two for your information to be entered into our student database. You will then be able to register for classes.
