BCOE Enrollment Assistance Form Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs):
I took a higher level course to meet the pre-requisite. How do I enroll?
If you have met the pre-requisite using a course that the enrollment system doesn’t recognize, then you must obtain permission by completing the BCOE Enrollment Assistance Form. An example could be that the course requires completion of MATH 5 and you have earned credit for MATH 9A. Please submit the form. You will receive an email when your request is complete.
I want to repeat a course that I already in which I have already earned credit. How do I enroll?
Typically, you can only repeat courses in which you have earned a grade of D- or lower. However, if you are repeating a course in which you earned a grade of at least C-, but not a high enough of a grade to meet the pre-requisite for another course, then you must obtain permission by completing the BCOE Enrollment Assistance Form. For example, if you earned a C- in CS 10, you will need to repeat CS 10 and earn a grade of at least C in order to take CS 12. Please submit the form.

I took the pre-requisite course somewhere other than UCR. How do I enroll?
If you took a course at another institution, it is possible that not all components that you took are recognized by the registration system and you must obtain permission by completing the BCOE Enrollment Assistance Form. For example, a transfer student that completed the CHEM 1ABC series at their transfer institution will always need assistance enrolling a course that requires completion of the lab portion of that series. A form will need to be submitted every time. Please plan in advance of your registration date. You will not be able to enroll in the course on your own. Complete form linked above and you will receive an email when your request is complete.
