Want a little more information before you apply?
Just want to take a class or two? At UC, anyone can take a class without being enrolled in a degree program. This is a great option if you just need to build a specific skill or want to try out classes before you enroll. Or maybe you're a student at another school and need to get an extra class during the summer, winter or at any time.
