Concurrent Enrollment


Concurrent enrollment: what you need to know

Available Fall, Winter and Spring Quarters

Concurrent Enrollment is a privilege given to members of the general public to enroll in regular UC Riverside courses without formal admission to the university. It is subject to space availability after all regular UC Riverside students have been accommodated.

Application

Complete the Concurrent Application and return it to UCR Extension Student Services. There is a nonrefundable application fee of $50.

Enrollment Process

  • View the UC Riverside General Catalog and the Schedule of Classes for the upcoming quarter or purchase them at the University Campus Store.
  • Decide which classes to attend. Choose an alternative class in case your choice is filled.
  • Pick up the Concurrent Enrollment Form(s) from the UCR Extension Student Services Office and complete and sign the form(s) before attending class. You must submit one enrollment form for each class. Enrollment forms are available two weeks before classes begin. See Academic Schedule.
  • Attend class and introduce yourself as a concurrent student to the instructor in charge of the course. If granted permission to attend class, have the instructor sign the concurrent enrollment form. Approval by a TA or any other assistant is not adequate.
  • If you currently are, or have ever been, a registered UC Riverside student, you must also secure the approval of the dean of your college or school.
  • Students expecting to graduate with a bachelor's degree from UC Riverside are cautioned that XRC prefix courses are not counted as taken in residence at UC Riverside, and 35 of the final 45 units completed by each student prior to receiving the baccalaureate degree must be earned in residence at UC Riverside.
  • Return the completed enrollment form with the required signatures to the UCR Extension Student Services Office and pay course fees.
  • Show your instructor(s) your receipt of payment and have them add your name to the class roster.

Credit/Transferable Units

Concurrent course units are transferable to a degree-granting institution under certain circumstances. Please consult with that school regarding the transferability of units. UCR Extension does not grant degrees.

Students being admitted or readmitted to UC Riverside with XRC prefix courses receive grade points as well as unit credit.

Students expecting to graduate with a bachelor's degree from UC Riverside are cautioned that XRC prefix courses are not counted as taken in residence at UC Riverside, and 35 of the final 45 units completed by each student prior to receiving the baccalaureate degree must be earned in residence at UC Riverside.

Transcripts

Grades for concurrent courses are recorded only at UCR Extension. They are not automatically transferred to the UC Riverside Registrar. Transcripts must be requested electronically or in person. They are available for a fee of $10 per copy. There is an additional $10 rush fee for transcripts produced while you wait.

Grades

Concurrent student names will not appear on the regular class roster. Instructors will receive a grade roster from the UCR Extension Student Services Office at the end of the quarter. Grade reports are mailed to students after grades are posted.

Financial Aid

Because UCR Extension is self-supporting and does not participate in financial aid programs, no financial aid is available. For information on private loan programs, contact Student Services at (951) 827-4105.

Transfers

A $5 fee will be charged for transfer from one course to another. No transfers after the third week of the quarter.

Prerequisites

Prerequisites vary depending on which class is being taken. For specific information, please see the course listing in the UC Riverside General Catalog.
