Concurrent Enrollment

Concurrent Enrollment Policy

Remote Quarters: UCSD Extension students will request instructor approval to enroll in a course by email. Students should provide documentation and a justification of preparedness for the course in their email request to the instructor. If instructor approval is received, forward the approval email to We will be reviewing Concurrent Enrollment requests beginning on Monday of Week 1. Concurrent Enrollment will be approved by Student Affairs provided that the instructor has approved AND there are available seats in the DSC course. If there are no longer any available seats, Concurrent Enrollment requests will be denied. 

Concurrent Enrollment through UC San Diego Extension provides the opportunity for those who are not registered UC San Diego students to enroll in DSC courses. You must register with UC San Diego Extension to participate in Concurrent Enrollment.

Concurrent Enrollment is not guaranteed. Although we do our best to accommodate Concurrent Enrollment Students, DSC Courses are in high demand.It is possible that a Concurrent Enrollment Student will not be approved to enroll in any DSC Courses.

Concurrent Enrollment approvals are contingent upon class attendance. Concurrent Enrollment Students will not be approved to enroll in DSC Courses they are not attending.

Concurrent Enrollment approvals will be based on: space availability, waitlist order (e.g., when students turned in the Concurrent Enrollment Add Form), and a review of Concurrent Enrollment Student requests, in order to try to place each student into at least one course.

A maximum of 4 courses per Concurrent Enrollment Student will be approved. If students are offered a spot in a fifth class, they will have to drop one of the other courses they were approved to add. However, due to high demand for DSC Courses, students should not expect to be offered more than 1-2 course approvals.
