Finding the right graduate school for you is an important decision, and in this section you can learn more about our degree programs, admissions criteria and funding opportunities, along with other helpful information.
Preparing to Apply
Students may take classes at UC without being enrolled in a UC degree program. Their official status is "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 submitting the Basic Data Form, it will take a day or two to enter all the information into our student database. Then you will be able to register for classes.
