Registration & Enrollment - Enrollment Information

Tele-BEARS Enrollment Periods

To ensure a fair distribution of courses for all students, enrollment takes place in two phases followed by an adjustment period. Please see the "Tele-BEARS Calendar" for specific start/end dates for Phases I, II, and the Adjustment Period.

Phase I

In Phase I, undergraduates can enroll in up to 10 units plus one Physical Education activity course (courses numbered 1, 2, 3, 4, or 5) for a total of 10.5 units; graduate students can enroll in up to 12 units plus one Physical Education activity course for a total of 12.5 units.

Units for waitlisted courses are included in these unit totals. You are free to adjust your schedule as long as you stay within the 10.5/12.5 unit limit.

Phase II

Effective Fall 2009, undergraduates will not be able to add an additional class if s/he is already enrolled and/or waitlisted in 16 or more units. For example, if you are enrolled and/or waitlisted for 15 units, you would still be allowed to add or waitlist for another class. Both enrolled and waitlisted units are included as part of your unit total. Phase II is your first opportunity to add more classes so that you can attain a full course load.

Graduate students can enroll in up to their college or school maximum units during Phase II.

The Adjustment Period

You can continue to adjust your schedule via Tele-BEARS during the Adjustment Period, where you can add classes up to the maximum number of units allowed by your college or school. (See Courseload Regulations) The ending date of the Adjustment Period (i.e., how long Tele-BEARS is available for a particular function) varies according your college or school affiliation, whether you are an undergraduate or graduate student, and the transaction you wish to accomplish.

A $10 fee is charged for each class dropped after the second week of instruction (undergraduates) and after the third week of instruction (graduate students). A $5 fee is charged to all students for each class added after the third week of instruction. Note: Students who are not officially registered by the end of the third week of instruction will be charged a$150 late registration fee if they become officially registered afterwards. (See Late Enrollment.)

After Tele-BEARS is no longer available, any schedule adjustments must be processed through your college, school, or department via the Online Add/Drop System (OLADS).

NOTE: All fees are subject to change.
