Units

As an Open Campus student, you can take up to 8 quarter units of undergraduate work (course numbers 1-198), 4 quarter units of graduate work (course numbers 200 and above) or 5 units of combined graduate and undergraduate courses per quarter. Talk to your academic advisor before enrolling if you plan to transfer credits earned through Open Campus toward a degree to ensure that your Open Campus work will be accepted.

Petition to Exceed Unit Maximum

If you want to request to take courses that have a combined unit total exceeding the limits noted above, you must submit a Petition to Exceed Unit Maximum. This form must be returned by the deadline to the UC Davis Extension Student Services office for approval. If your petition is approved, you may complete your enrollment. Your Petition to Exceed Unit Maximum must be completed prior to enrollment.

Students taking courses for readmission to UC Davis should attach an academic plan, approved by a UC Davis academic advisor, to the Petition to Exceed Unit Maximum.

Fees

Enrollment Fee

Enrollment fees are due at the time of enrollment.

$300 per academic unit.

The per unit enrollment fee is subject to change without notice. Fees for courses that are part of the self supporting master’s degree programs in Forensic Science and Maternal and Child Nutrition are at the rate paid by the students in those programs.

Semester-length courses will be charged a higher per-unit fee determined at the time of enrollment.

Late Enrollment Fee

A $50 late enrollment fee per class is required for processing enrollments after the deadline to enroll. All late enrollments must be submitted with a written request indicating the extenuating circumstances for the late enrollment and will be reviewed on a case-by-case basis.

Activities and Recreation Center Fee

Open Campus students participating in physical education classes held at the Activities and Recreation Center will need to purchase a pass for the quarter. Open Campus students are eligible for the affiliate rate at the ARC.

Discounts

UC Davis Alumni Association members are eligible for a $50 discount (courses $300 or more) on one Open Campus course per quarter.

Proof of current CAAA membership is required upon payment of fees.

UC Davis career and academic staff are eligible to receive 20 percent (up to $200 maximum discount per course) off all Open Campus courses. Current eligibility will be confirmed at the time of enrollment/payment.

Please note: Discounts should be requested at time of enrollment and cannot be applied after enrollment is submitted.

Financial Aid

While Open Campus students are not eligible for federal or state-funded financial aid, options for financing your education include private alternative loans and direct to consumer loans. For more information about private alternative loans please visit our student loan information page.

How to Enroll

Please note: Participating in this educational program does not in itself provide preference in admission to the University of California. Students interested in applying to the university should refer to the admissions website or the admissions office of the UC campus they wish to attend for details about the admissions process.

  1. Choose the courses you want to enroll in. Refer to the UC Davis General Catalog and the Quarterly Class Schedule and Registration Guide for a list of all available courses. Some restrictions apply, so be sure the courses you are interested in are available for Open Campus enrollment. See limitations on the enrollment policies page.
  2. Complete an Open Campus enrollment form for each course you want to enroll in.
  3. Obtain instructor's signature for each course. Take your enrollment form to the first class meeting and let the instructor know that you'd like to take the course through UC Davis Open Campus. Ask the instructor to sign your application. Your enrollment is on a space-available basis, and some instructors may wait up to three weeks to confirm that space is available. Please note: some courses also require the signature of the department chair or dean. See limitations on the enrollment policies page.
  4. Submit your enrollment form in person. To finalize the enrollment process, bring your completed and signed enrollment form, along with payment, to the UC Davis Extension Student Services office by the published deadline.
