ECE Undergraduate Course Enrollment

Undergraduate Courses (ECE 5-199)

ECE undergraduate students are prioritized for ECE undergraduate courses. ECE graduate students are prioritized for ECE graduate courses. Unfortunately, ECE grads cannot waitlist in undergraduate courses- they need to be cleared to enroll via the EASy system.

If you are an ECE graduate student looking to enroll in an ECE undergraduate level course, please submit an EASy request. If space permits, your request will be approved (starting during week 10) on a first-come, first-serve basis.

  • You can begin submitting EASy requests every quarter during Week 5 for enrolling in a course the following quarter.
  • Please submit any relevant transcripts, syllabi and a strong justification in your EASy request.
  • This request will be routed to the professor teaching the undergraduate course so please keep that in mind. 
  • Your EASy request will be processed starting during week 10. Note that there is a high possibility that it could be processed after week 10 as late as week 3-4 of the following quarter. 
  • The ECE Dept. recommends for students to choose a backup class in the event that they do not get cleared to enroll in the undergraduate class.
  • Submitting an EASy request does not guarantee that you will be cleared of a prerequisite in order to enroll in a course (e.g., ECE 264A-D, ECE 265A-D, ECE 229).
