Your Orientation Leader Team is available to assist you during your enrollment appointment- they are holding Day-of Enrollment Support sessions from 2:00pm to 5:00pm and again from 6:30pm-9:30pm (PST)!

In order to get an early enrollment appointment (enroll for classes), you must complete the Slug Orientation Courses, and submit your official test scores and transcripts to admissions by the deadlines.

Enrollment appointments are assigned on a first-come, first-served basis. As you meet your requirements (completing orientation online courses during the summer and submitting official documents to admissions), a class enrollment appointment will be assigned to you.

If you need additional help preparing your classes, your advisers will be available from July 22nd to August 2nd during Virtual Advising Days.

Preparing for Class Enrollment

section 508 compliance iconDo not delay. As soon as your enrollment appointment opens, you should log in to your MyUCSC portal and complete your enrollment. 


By the time your enrollment appointment begins, you must have done all of the necessary prep work. This includes confirming your enrollment appointment date and time, looking through the Schedule of Classes, having a list of 4-6 classes you may want (or need) to take, AND having at least 3 possible schedule options within MyScheduler.
