Frequently Asked Questions

How Do I Register?

Currently, you may only register online.

ONLINE REGISTRATION is now available on this very site! You can sign up for classes from the comfort of your own home. This system is new and if you experience any hiccups, please let us know (at info@ecollege.ucdavis.edu) and we will try to rectify the situation quickly and smoothly.

How do I find the Experimental College?

You can find the map to the Experimental college here.

When is the last day to sign up for a class?

We don’t have a general cutoff day for registration, so the short answer is that students should sign up before the class starts, and before the class is full. However, most teachers are OK with students signing up late, and you can sign up anytime online. If you are concerned about missing the beginning of the class, you can find all the instructors emails on their profile page.

Can I go to the first class to check it out?

All of the instructors will allow you to to drop in and observe a class. In general you are not allowed to participate in the class unless you are registered for the class. Please show up on time for the class if you would like to observe, and let the instructor know.

Can I get a refund for…?

Please refer to the refund page.

When do classes start?

The ASUCD Experimental College runs on the same schedule as the UC Davis quarter system, and classes typically start two weeks after the Fall, Spring, and Winter quarters begin, and one week after the UC Davis Summer Session I and Summer Session II begin.
