Enrollment: Graduate students are expected to assume responsibility for enrolling themselves each quarter, and for making sure they are enrolled appropriately (in at least 12 units/quarter) by the end of the second week of every term. For graduate students, there is no enrollment during summer. All enrollment and drop deadlines are listed in the online Academic Calendar http://www.registrar.ucla.edu/calendar/index.htm. All the numbers you will need in order to enroll yourself are available in the online Schedule of Classes at www.registrar.ucla.edu/schedule. Failure to enroll by the deadline will result in a late study list fee of $50, for which you will be required to pay yourself. Not being properly enrolled by the deadline may cause your funding for the quarter to be revoked. This is a difficulty no one needs, so let self-interest keep you properly enrolled in Fall, Winter, & Spring Quarters.
Registration Information and Class Schedules: For the most up-to-date list of courses being offered please visit the online Schedule of Classes at http://www.registrar.ucla.edu/schedule/. To see courses taught in a previous quarter not currently shown, simply change the quarter (14F to 13F, for example) within the URL. Remember that all graduate students must be enrolled in at least 12 units by the end of the second week of courses for every term (Fall, Winter, Spring quarters).
Where should students report name or address changes? Name changes should be reported to the Registrar’s Office. Students are urged to maintain their own mailing, permanent, and email address listings online using MyUCLA. Changes can also be made and revised documents can be obtained at 1113 Murphy Hall and at most student service offices in Murphy Hall.
English as a Second Language – Test of Oral Proficiency (TOP Exam): All international students (i.e., non-citizens) whose native language is not English will need to pass the TOP before they are allowed to work as a teaching assistant (TA) at UCLA. Bioinformatics IDP requires that each student TA for one quarter, so all international students will need to take this exam as soon as possible.
