Enrollment into Math and Programming In Computing (PIC) Courses

Winter 2021 Enrollment Period

  • Priority Enrollment– Upper division math courses are restricted to math majors and math minors only with the exception of actuarial courses.
    • 11/9/20 – 11/11/20
  • First Pass – Upper division math courses are restricted to math majors and math minors only during the first pass with the exception of actuarial courses.
    • 11/12/19 – 11/18/20
  • Second Pass – Upper division math courses open to all students regardless of major.
    • 11/19/20 – 1/15/21
  • The Math Dept. 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. If there are issues during second pass, please notify the deptartment. 

UPDATED 11/24/20:

An additional seminar of Math 19 (Lecture 2) has been added with Professor Bertozzi. This seminar is currently restricted to freshmen students only. On November 30th, it will be available to all students.

An additional lecture of PIC 16A (Lecture 3) has been added to accommodate pre-FAM students close to finishing their pre-major requirements. During second pass, this lecture will only be available to pre-FAM majors only. On November 30th, it will be available to all students.  

For lower division math courses – it is based on first come, first serve basis. Keep a close eye on the waitlist 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 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. 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 people 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 waitlist 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.

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) is point system. 

UPDATED 11/23/20: Due to increased demand of course, Math 118 will now be restricted to pre-data theory and data theory majors during second pass. On November 30th, it will be available to all students.  

Please note, the requisites for Math 118 are Math 42 and 115A and are required. If you do not have Math 42, we also accept Math 142 as a substitute. 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.*

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. 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 177, Math 178A, and Math 178B*: Available for declared actuarial majors during the first pass. Available for declared actuarial majors and premajors during the second pass. On November 30th, it will be available to all students

Updates:

Coming soon: We will be offering Math 151AH & 151BH within the next academic year.

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.

If you have any questions, email the Student Services Office at ugrad@math.ucla.edu.

  • The enrollment 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. 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.
