Enrollment Guidelines


  • Some math classes are impacted.
  • Enrollments are on a first-come, first-serve basis.

To sign up for a Math class:

  1. Add the class through CalCentral.
  2. In signing up for a lower-division math class, or an upper-division class with discussion sections, you must sign up for both the lecture and one of the corresponding discussion sections. 
  3. If you cannot immediately add a class, you should try to put yourself on the waitlist. (Some classes do not have waitlists.)
  4. Avoid adding a class or section you know ahead of time that you will not be able to attend; you might not be able to switch to another section that does work with your schedule later.
  5. Wait lists (for those classes that have them) are processed automatically by CalCentral, not by the department. 

See here for a complete "Cal Central Enrollment Guide for Students".

The good news: We do see about 10% of students enrolled at the start of instruction drop the class, so it is possible to enroll in a class that is closed near the beginning of term. You should attend class and discussion section from day one, turn in homework, etc., if you intend to enroll in the class should space opens up.
