Lower Division Mathematics Courses

Enrollment will be very limited in Math 1, Math 3A, Math 3B, Math 3C, Math 31A, Math 31B, Math 32A, 32B and Math 33A at the request of New Student Orientation to accommodate a large incoming class.  Continuing students are strongly encouraged to enroll into these classes during their first pass if you really need it.  ALL UNUSED SEATS THAT WE HAVE SET ASIDE FOR CONTINUING STUDENTS (with the exception of Math 1, Math 3A and Math 31A due to the diagnostic test) WILL BE GIVEN TO THE INCOMING CLASS ON WEDNESDAY, JULY 6, 2016 (almost two weeks after second pass begins). 

During first pass, continuing students will only be able to enroll into Discussion E and Discussion F until enrollment reaches the discussion capacity with the exception of Math 3C, Math 32B and Math 33A.  For Math 3C, Math 32B and Math 33A ONLY, continuing students will only be able to enroll into Discussion A to D until the discussion capacity is reached.  The capacities are true and waitlists are real, meaning that the only way to move up the waitlist and into a class is by other people dropping out of the specific discussion section.  There are no plans to go beyond the lecture capacity of 210.  We DO NOT give out PTE numbers and we cannot predict how many people will be dropping and when.  There are generally some people that drop the course at the beginning of the quarter, so we do expect to see some movement.  Once orientation ends, ALL students can add into any discussion beginning Tuesday, September 13, 2016 (we do not know the time) as long the capacity is below 35

To prevent incoming students from taking seats that are set aside for continuing students, enrollment capability into Discussion E and F (A to D for Math 3C, Math 32B and Math 33A only) will be closed during the enrollment period of the incoming students (http://www.newstudents.ucla.edu/firstyearstudents.htm#dateshttp://www.newstudents.ucla.edu/transferstudents.htm#dates). 

 

Upper Division Mathematics Courses

Please note that upper division math courses are restricted to math major and minors only during the first pass; it is open to all majors during the second pass (with a few exceptions*). 

If an upper division course is full we cannot allow any more students into the class until someone drops.  We urge students to frequently check MyUCLA to see if any students have dropped.  Instructors do not have control over course enrollment in this department.  If you are unable to enroll into the class by the first day of class: 

For upper division math courses - you can place your name on the unofficial waitlist (http://www.math.ucla.edu/ugrad/unofficial-waitlist) that will not start till the first day of class.  There are no guarantees on this unofficial waitlist - PTE numbers will be given out if there is room in the class and based on priority. 

*EXCEPTIONS due to limited course availability: 

-  Math 170A will be closed throughout summer orientation.  Once orientation ends, ALL students can add into any discussion beginning Tuesday, September 13, 2016 (we do not know the time) as long the capacity is below 40

-  Math 175 will be restricted to Actuarial majors only throughout summer orientation.  There is a brief window of opportunity for PRE-ACTUARIAL MAJORS WITH SENIOR STANDING TO ENROLL BETWEEN THURSDAY, JUNE 23, 2016 TO TUESDAY, JULY 5, 2016.  Once orientation ends, PRE-ACTUARIAL MAJORS WITH ANY CLASS STANDING  can add into any lecture beginning Monday, September 12, 2016 (we do not know the time) as long the capacity is below 40.  ALL students can add into any discussion beginning Tuesday, September 13, 2016 (we do not know the time) as long the capacity is below 40

 

To All Students No Matter What Your Situation Is

No matter what your situation is, if a course is full, we cannot allow any more students into the class until someone drops.  Lower and upper division discussion capacities are set and will remain at 35 and 40, respectively.  We urge students to frequently check MyUCLA to see if any students have dropped.  Instructors do not have control over course enrollment in this department.  If you are unable to enroll into the class by the first day of class, you should attend lecture and let the instructor and TA know of your situation in hopes that they will keep and grade your work while you are waiting for a spot to open.  You should have a backup plan nonetheless.
