    • 06/24/21 – 10/08/21
  • The Mathematics Department will assist EAP students with manual enrollment if they are declared as a pre-math major during their first pass, but for only one class where enrollment is not in high demand. If there are issues during second pass, please notify the department by emailing ugrad@math.ucla.edu.
  • (9/2/21 UPDATE)  Due to high demand and shift in resources, the following courses will open on Thursday, July 15, 2021:
    • Math 33B/1G & 1H
    • PIC 16A/3 (with limited capacity reserved for incoming students)
  • As of 9/2/21, all seats for Math 31A & 31AL have been given to orientation for incoming students. 

Enrollment will be very limited in the following courses at the request of New Student Orientation to accommodate a large incoming class. Continuing students who have high need for these courses are strongly encouraged to enroll into these classes during their first pass. After Sunday, July 18, 2021, all unused seats that were set aside for continuing students will be given to the incoming class.

Math 1

During first pass, continuing students will only be able to enroll into Discussion C and Discussion D until enrollment reaches the discussion capacity (usually 35 with 3 on the wait list).

To prevent incoming students from taking seats that are set aside for continuing students, enrollment into Discussion C and D will be closed during the enrollment period of the incoming students (see Orientations dates, http://newstudents.ucla.edu/, for more details).

Math 31A,

Math 31AL,

Math 31B &

Math 32A

During first pass, continuing students will only be able to enroll into Discussion E and Discussion F until enrollment reaches the discussion capacity (usually 35 with 3 on the wait list).

To prevent incoming students from taking seats that are set aside for continuing students, enrollment into Discussion E and F will be closed during the enrollment period of the incoming students (see Orientations dates, http://newstudents.ucla.edu/, for more details).

Math 32B, Math 33A,

Math 33B &

Math 61

Continuing students will be able to enroll into Discussion A, B, C, and D until enrollment reaches the discussion capacity (usually 35 with 3 on the wait list).
Math 42 During first pass, it is available to pre- and declared Data Theory majors.  Second pass is open to all students.  All seats not taken by continuing students will be given to Orientation after July 18, 2021.
  • The enrollment capacities are true and wait lists are real, meaning that the only way to move up the wait list 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. Generally, we can expect some students to drop the course at the beginning of the quarter.
  • Once orientation ends, enrollment will be open to all students as long the enrollment is less than 35 students.

For lower division math courses – it is based on first come, first serve basis. Keep a close eye on the wait list since that is the best way to get into the 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. ALWAYS have a back up plan.

The wait list is a true wait list. This means that students have to drop the course in order for those on the wait list can be added into the course.  If no one drops, no one will move into the course. Our enrollment capacity is 35 students per discussion section. We do not give out PTE numbers and we cannot predict how many students will be dropping the course. In general, some students may drop the course at the beginning of the course, so we do expect to see some changes in enrollment.

At the end of Week 2, the registrar will drop the wait list and it will cease to exist. We will continue to leave the class capacity to 35 in each discussion. At Week 3, it is up to the instructor if he or she wants to go beyond class capacity even though it is not advised by the department. If instructors do not have the enrollment policy stated on their syllabus or webpage, speak to the instructor directly.

  1. Students need to score at least 80% on ALEKS to enroll into calculus (Math 31A). This means the score you see on ALEKS is a percentage amount and the score listed as a requisite (>=48/60) is point system.
  2. Students need to score between 60% – 80% ONLY to be able to enroll into Math 31AL. If you score higher, you will not be able to enroll into the course.

Please note that these restrictions will be lifted on Monday, September 13, 2021.

Upper division math courses are restricted to math majors and math minors during the first pass – even premajors are locked out at this time. Enrollment is open to all majors during the second pass, with a few exceptions.*

If an upper division course is full, more students will not be allowed into the class until someone drops. Students are encouraged to check MyUCLA frequently 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 can place your name on the unofficial waitlist . The unofficial waitlist opens on first day of class during the academic year. 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 115A, Math 170E, Math 170S: Enrollment will be closed during summer orientation (after Sunday, July 18, 2021) for incoming students, so continuing students should enroll before then. Once orientation ends, all students can enroll into any discussion beginning Monday, September 13, 2021 as long enrollment is less than 40 students.  
  • Math 118:  During first pass, it is available to pre and declared Data Theory majors.  Second pass is open to all students.   
  • Math 177: Enrollment will be closed during summer orientation for incoming actuarial pre-majors only so continuing actuarial major and pre-major should enroll before then.
  • Math 178A: During first pass, it is available to declared actuarial majors.  Second pass is open to declared actuarial majors and premajors. On Thursday, July 1, 2021 it will be available to everyone.

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 about your situation. In many cases, the instructor will keep and grade your work while you are waiting for a spot to open. Always have a backup plan in case your first choice is not available.

The waitlist is a true waitlist. This means that people have to drop the course before people are added from the waitlist into the course. If students drop from your discussion section, the next person on the waitlist will move into the course. If no one drops, no one will move into the course.

If you are a pre/declared data theory major student and are having trouble enrolling into Math 118, please email us by November 30th and we will help out with enrollment. Any requests made after November 30th will not be honored.

Upper division math courses are restricted to math majors and math minors during the first pass. Enrollment is open to all majors during the second pass, with a few exceptions.*
