Concurrent enrollment through UCLA Extension provides an opportunity for the public to take UCLA regular-session daytime courses with instructor consent and on a space-available basis. Individuals must petition to enroll in these courses through UCLA Extension.

Visiting Students

Visiting students from other universities who wish to participate in research or other scholarly opportunities at UCLA must have a faculty mentor or supervisor and be recorded as being present on campus.
