For EE majors who are following the Communication Systems Depth: ECE 159 has been cancelled for the 2021-22 academic year.  Students who were planning to take this course in WI22 can replace this course with ANY Upper Division ECE course not being used toward the major requirements.  Please contact the advising office through the VAC (Virtual Advising Center) and let us know that you are following the Communication Systems Depth and specify which course you wish to replace with ECE 159.  Please note that this exception will be made only for students planning to graduate by Spring or Summer '22.   

Graduate Level Courses Undergrads must submit an EASy request to enroll. EASy requests will be approved after ECE Graduate student enrollment is finalized. Please note that undergrads cannot be added to a graduate level course waitlist. Students may not be cleared to add until the first day of the quarter, with Professor approval and space availability in the course.

 

***Undergraduate students who do not have prerequisites in non-core ECE courses and want to enroll in a specific course, will need faculty approval through the online course pre-authorization system. 

Students will be cleared after 2nd pass to allow students who have completed prerequisites to enroll first.

Please NOTE: Getting faculty approval and being cleared to enroll in the course will not guarantee you a spot. If a class is full, please place yourself on the waitlist

Wait List Policy

If a course that you want to enroll in is full, please place yourself on the waitlist. Please note that you cannot waitlist a course during your 1st Pass. Waitlisting is available during the 2nd Pass only. The buttons to ENROLL or WAITLIST will be blacked out. This is normal.

We understand that you need these courses to graduate so please be patient as we work on enlarging enrollment. The Department will do everything we can to accommodate students so please be patient. Waitlist yourself into the class and if seats become available, students will be enrolled in the order they waitlisted. We cannot guarantee that you will get into the course. If you need assistance with an alternate course, stop by during walk in advising hours in Jacobs Hall 2701 or 2702.

***During the enrollment period, it is critical that you check your UCSD email for any updates. This may have an impact on your schedule.***

****If enrollment limits are increased, it takes the system overnight to process this command. Students will be added in the order they are on the waitlist. Please have patience.****
