You will be placed on probation if your term or overall grade-point average (GPA) falls between 1.5 and 1.99. You will be subject to dismissal if your grade-point average in any one term is less than 1.5 OR if you do not earn at least a C (2.0) average in any one term when you were on probation OR if you do not end probation by the end of the next term. Subject to Dismissal does not mean that you are going to be immediately dismissed; however, you must make an appointment to meet with your OASA Counselor who will explain the conditions under which you will be allowed to continue. You should meet with your Counselor in the Office of Academic and Student Affairs (OASA, 6426 BH) if you have been notified that you are on academic probation or subject to dismissal.
You are in "good academic standing" if at the close of a regular term you have attained a “C” (2.0) average for the term and a cumulative “C” (2.0) average in all University work.
UCLA does not provide official rank information as outlined at
You can have some indication of how you measure up against your peers, by reviewing the Latin Honors cutoff for the academic year you graduate (or present academic year if your degree completion term is well into the future and not yet determined).
For example if your degree completion term was Fall ‘10 or you plan to complete after the Winter ‘11 term, your degree completion academic year is 2010-11 and you may compare your standing to other students by a statement such as follows:
"UCLA does not assign individual rankings to students. If you receive Latin Honors, you have some indication of how you measure up against your peers. For HSSEAS, if you graduated summa cum laude, you're in the top 5% of your class; magna cum laude, top 10%; cum laude, top 20%.”
More Information can be found at this link: Latin Honors
Additionally, you can contact your HSSEAS academic counselor who may be able to give you unofficial, limited rank information, run from an internal HSSEAS report.
The Counselors and Staff of the HSSEAS Office of Academic and Student Affairs (OASA), 6426 BH, are available to assist you and answer your questions. You can e-mail your OASA Counselor, List of Academic Counselors, or call (310)825-9580 to schedule an appointment. We do not do same day appointments.
- Advising by Appointment
- Available Mondays, Tuesdays, Wednesday afternoons, Thursday mornings, and Fridays.
- We do not do same day appointments.
- Call (310) 825-9580 or stop by 6426BH to set up an appointment.
- Walk-in Counseling
- Available Wednesdays (9:00am-11:30am) and Thursdays (1:00pm-4:00pm)
- On a first-come limited basis (normally 15 minute appointments.)
- During peak advising periods, students should prepared to have a significant wait period to see a counselor depending on the number of students who are signed in ahead on the walk-in advising check-in list and especially if you are requesting to see a specific counselor. Plan accordingly and give yourself a sufficient amount of time. Limited to HSSEAS students only. If you are a non-HSSEAS student and are considering a change of major to HSSEAS, please sign up for our change of major workshop.
The instructor may assign the incomplete (I) grade under the following conditions: the student must ask the instructor for the “I” grade, the student's work must be of passing quality and the reasons for requesting the “I” grade must be of sufficient gravity to warrant an incomplete grade (such as illness or other serious problem). It is the student's responsibility to discuss with the instructor the possibility of receiving an “I” grade as opposed to a non-passing grade.
If an “I” grade is assigned, students may receive unit credit and grade points by satisfactorily completing the coursework as specified by the instructor. Students should not reenroll in the course; if they do, it is recorded twice on the transcript. If the work is not completed by the end of the next full term in residence, the “I” grade lapses to an “F”, NP, or U as appropriate. The College or school may extend the deadline in unusual cases (not applicable to graduate students). Once an Incomplete (I) grade is assigned, it remains on the transcript along with the passing grade students may later receive for the course.
Required math, science and engineering courses must be taken for a letter grade. HSSEAS students may choose the P/NP grading option for courses that qualify as GEs (except Engcomp 3, Engr 183EW, Engr 185EW and life sciences courses taken by Bioengineering, Chemical Engineering majors and students following the Biomedical Option of Electrical Engineering), students must meet P/NP eligibility requirements - stop by 6426 BH for details or go to Deadlines and Enrollment Policies page.
Grades above an “F” do not have to be repeated (with the
exception of the Ethics course requirements (ENGR 183EW, ENGR 185EW, BIOENGR
165EW), English 3, Subject A, English as a Second Language, and American
History and Institutions required courses which all must be passed with a minimum
grade of “C”).
If a course is required for your major and you receive an “F”, you must repeat it.
You may have the option to repeat courses in which you have received
a “C-” or lower grade or NP
if you have not previously repeated that course.
Some Departments (such as Chem) recommend that students earn at least a “C-” or higher before going on to the next level course and this information is normally specified in the requisite information in the course description such as:
Chem 20B. Chemical Energetics and Change. (4) Lecture, three hours; discussion, one hour. Enforced requisites: course 20A or 20AH, and Mathematics 31A, with grades of C- or better.
Some departments (such as Math) may have credit limitations on repeats which are usually noted in the General catalog in the section for that department under Credit Limitations such as:
Credit Limitations: For lower division mathematics courses, students may not take or repeat a course for credit if it is a requisite for a more advanced lower division course for which they already have credit. This applies in particular to the repetition of courses (e.g., if students wish to repeat Mathematics 31B, they must do so before completing course 32B; if students wish to repeat Mathematics 3B or 31B or 32A, they must do so before completing course 33A).
You must meet certain GPA requirements to graduate. If you receive a grade lower than “C”, you are advised to meet with your OASA Counselor.
See more repeat rule information detailed below under
For students who repeat a total of 16 units or less, only the most recently earned letter grades and grade points will be computed in your GPA. After repeating 16 units, however, your GPA will be based on all letter grades assigned and total units attempted. The grade assigned each time you take a course will be permanently recorded on your transcript.
- To improve the grade-point average, students may repeat only those courses in which they receive a grade of C- or lower; NP or U grades may be repeated to gain unit credit. Courses in which a letter grade is received may not be repeated on a P/NP or S/U basis. Courses originally taken on a P/NP or S/U basis may be repeated on the same basis or for a letter grade.
- Repetition of a course more than once requires the approval of the College or school or the dean of the Graduate Division, and is granted only under extraordinary circumstances.
- Degree credit for a course is given only once, but the grade assigned each time the course is taken is permanently recorded on the transcript.
- For undergraduates who repeat a total of 16 units or less, only the most recently earned letter grades and grade points are computed in the GPA. After repeating 16 units, however, the GPA is based on all letter grades assigned and total units attempted.
- There is no guarantee that in a later term a course can be repeated (such as in cases when a course is deleted or no longer offered). In these cases a student should consult with their academic counselor to determine if there is an alternate course the student needs to take to satisfy a requirement. The alternate course would NOT count as a repeat of the original course.
Enrollment Policies and Deadlines
More information can be found on this website: http://www.seasoasa.ucla.edu/undergraduates/change-of-majord
In general, if in doubt, see your academic counselor: http://www.seasoasa.ucla.edu/undergraduates/counselorsd
We encourage you to see your HSSEAS Academic Counselor here: HSSEAS Counselor and the College of Letters of Science Counselor here: L&S Counselor as well as the Career Counselors here: Career Counselors
The deadline to:
Drop an Impacted course is the last business day (usually Friday) of 2nd Week at 5 PM.
Add a course is the last business day of 3rd Week at 5 PM.
Drop a course is the last business day of 4th Week at 5 PM.
Change a course to P/NP is the last business day of 6th Week at 5 PM.
For updated dates, please check this link: Drop Deadlines.
My friend, who is in the College of Letters & Science, says that I can drop a course through 10th week of the term. - Is that true?
No, the deadline (Deadlines and Enrollment Policies) to drop a non-impacted course for HSSEAS students is Friday of fourth week of the term via URSA until 5 p.m., even if it is an L&S course. The deadline to drop an impacted course is second week of the term. The new deadline to add any course is Friday of third week.
To "drop" a course means to dis-enroll from one (or more) specific course(s), while continuing to attend others. HSSEAS students must meet drop deadlines and must be enrolled in a minimum of 12 units per term. To "withdraw" means to discontinue attendance in ALL courses in which you are enrolled. HSSEAS students MUST file a Notice of Withdrawal at the Office of Academic and Student Affairs, 6426 BH. Withdrawal requests are subject to review and approval by the Dean. You may file a request to withdraw for consideration only if you have not taken any final examinations or otherwise completed the work in any of your classes.
The following tips can be helpful when you are enrolling each term:
- prepare ahead by logging onto HSSEAS Degree Audit Reporting System (DARS) and knowing your course options needed to degree completion AND schedule an appointment to see your Academic Counselor BEFORE your enrollment begins
- do NOT enroll in time conflicted courses on the assumption that you will get into another section or a more preferred course at a later date
- when you begin to enroll, if you get a message from URSA stating the you do not meet the pre-requisite or enrollment restrictions refer to here.
- if you are attempting to enroll in a course and the course is closed, it is best that you EMAIL the lead counselor of the department that the course is under (e.g. CS course - email CS Counselor, Math course - email Math Counselor) BEFORE the term begins. Once the term starts there be limited assistance a counselor can give you, so be open to work with us.
The following contacts can update you as to the enrollment status of courses in their departments:

URSA will not let me enroll due to an enrollment restriction and the course is needed for my major - how can I get enrolled?
Many departments limit FIRST pass enrollment to students in that
major(s) and then open the course enrollment to other majors either:
- during SECOND pass. This is the case with most HSSEAS courses (e.g. Bioengineering courses have a first pass enrollment restriction to bioengineering majors, then the courses open to other HSSEAS majors second pass).
- specific to Com Sci 31, fall term offerings, after new student Summer Orientation (late August)
Priority Enrollment- URSA will not allow priority enrollment for courses that have a wait list option only. You must add yourself to the wait list during your FIRST pass.
HSSEAS undergraduates must enroll in 12-21 units each quarter. Students wishing to enroll in less than 12 units or more than 21 units must obtain approval by petition to the Associate Dean, 6426 Boelter Hall, prior to enrollment. Filing a petition does not guarantee approval. Normally HSSEAS students are only approved, by petition, to enroll in less than 12 units for reasons of: final term before degree completion and only needs less than 12 units to complete degree, employment with verification that student is working 20 or more hours a week or due to on going medical limitations with verification from doctor or trained professional, Students approved by petition to enroll in 10 units or less may only be eligible for reduced fees as outlined at fee reduction. For more information go to the HSSEAS Office of Academic and Student Affairs, 6426BH.
If you cannot
enroll in a course because that course is full, we encourage you to view the
information posted at the following website (which includes a survey where you
can register your interest in enrolling in a specific course):HSSEAS Enrollment
Consideration Request Form
As an undergraduate can I enroll in a graduate level course (courses numbered 200 and above)?
HSSEAS undergraduate students are not allowed to enroll in
graduate level courses without first obtaining approval by petition at 6426BH.
See your HSSEAS Academic Counselor for more details.
Students must meet requisites and have at minimum a 3.0 GPA for approval consideration.
Enrollment assignments are done by the Registrar's Office and not by the School of Engineering.
Based on class level, enrollment appointments are assigned randomly within the times and dates shown at the Registrar's and are based on student status when appointments are assigned. Find exact enrollment appointment times through URSA
Please refer to the Registrar's link for clarification: http://www.registrar.ucla.edu/soc/enroll.htm#Anchor-Enrollment-14210
If you are a senior nearing graduation you are advised make sure you have declared a degree expected term at your earliest to ensure you receive the appropriate enrollment appointment.
URSA may not recognize AP credit, EAP credit, or
transfer credit from another school. URSA may also have trouble
recognizing approved petition substitutions for required courses.
If you believe you fulfilled the requisite through a course you took at another school then you should contact the department that teaches that course for enrollment assistance. In most cases URSA will give you a warning that you can bypass and still enroll. However, the CHEMISTRY, COMPUTER SCIENCE, ELECTRICAL, MECHANICAL & AEROSPACE and STATISTICS Departments do enforce all the requisites for their undergraduate courses. You are advised to first check if you meet the requisites for the course and if you do, then contact the department directly as outlined below:

Your study list refers to the courses in which you are enrolled for the term.
You can obtain a copy of your study list by logging onto URSA OnLine or at the Registrar's Office (1113 Murphy Hall), and your OASA Counselor can also print your study list for you. You are advised to check your study list during the second week of each quarter to confirm your enrollment (checking second week will give you time to add or drop a course by the HSSEAS third week add deadline and fourth week drop deadline of non-impacted courses, if changes are needed). Check Study List at the beginning of 3rd week if on wait list for any course at end of 2nd week - wait list does NOT guarantee enrollment.
On CourseWeb, the student can click on "Change/View Advisors" and they can see each professor's advising hours and office location. They can also click "Contact" for the instructor's email address.
Students who have not yet had a recorded meeting with a faculty member during the current school year will get a warning message when they log in to CourseWeb.
You can ask them questions about the field that they are involved in. You can discuss research opportunities, whether or not to pursue graduate school, companies in the field that have hired UCLA graduates in the past, or you can even discuss how the faculty member ended up as a professor.
Yes, we encourage that you meet with them as often as you would like. Once a year is the minimum requirement.
HSSEAS students are expected to meet with their advisor at least once a year. Your faculty advisor will post his/her office hours on CourseWeb. Those students who have not met with their faculty advisor by the beginning of the 4th week of the spring quarter will have holds placed on their records. Students are strongly encouraged to meet with their faculty advisors during the faculty member's special advising hours during 2nd or 3rd week, but they may also try to contact them and set up meetings for other times.
When you meet with your faculty member, make sure that he/she clicks off on CourseWeb that you have been seen.
HSSEAS feels that it is important for students to develop relationships with faculty. While students often don't feel like they don't have questions for the faculty early in their college careers, we feel that interacting with faculty early will make them feel more comfortable asking faculty for help in the future when it is more important. A letter of recommendation from your faculty advisor will be more meaningful if they have met with you multiple times throughout your career.
Students can change faculty advisors on CourseWeb by clicking on the "My Advisors" link. If the student does not want to change faculty advisors, they may see any faculty member in their department. The faculty has the ability to log in meetings with any student, even those who are not their official assigned advisees.
Each HSSEAS student is assigned a faculty advisor within the student's department. You can find out who your faculty advisor is by logging on to CourseWeb. Faculty advisors are available if you have questions that your academic counselors may not be able to answer. They can provide advice about graduate school, undergraduate research, and job opportunities in the industry. It is our hope that you develop a relationship with them, especially since you may need them to write you a letter of recommendation.
The Degree Expected Term is the year and quarter that a student plans to finish all his/her major requirements for completion of the bachelor's degree.
Deadline for declaration or change of bachelor's degree candidacy
on URSA - BEFORE 172 units for Engineering students.
After 172 units there is a Registrar fee
Students approaching graduation MUST follow the degree audit process in order for OASA to clarify exactly which requirements remain to be fulfilled for degree completion. This is a mandatory process students should be aware of at least two quarters prior to their degree expected term.
You can purchase all graduation materials at the UCLA Store. More information can be provided at their website. Caps and gowns should be purchased before June and can be picked up in the middle of May.
Major Requirements and Course Options
Your catalog year refers to the academic year you were admitted into your HSSEAS major. Your catalog year is important because you follow the curriculum requirements that were in effect that academic year (i.e. if you were admitted to Civil Engineering for Fall 2005 - your catalog year is 2005-2006). When referring to your curriculum requirements you should review what is outlined at
AND your catalog year's HSSEAS Announcement.
You can obtain details as to your HSSEAS major requirements at the following website
DARS is the Degree Audit Reporting System (DARS) and you can find more information in that link.
HSSEAS students in good academic standing may be permitted a double major or minor. The second major must be outside HSSEAS (e.g. Electrical Engineering major and Economics major). HSSEAS students are not permitted to double major with two HSSEAS majors (e.g. Chemical Engineering and Civil Engineering). You may file an Undergraduate Request to Double Major or Add Minor form at the Office of Academic and Student Affairs (OASA), 6426 BH. HSSEAS determines final approval of a double major or minor request - review is done on a case by case basis, filing the request does NOT guarantee approval.
While HSSEAS will consider double major or minor requests, specializations are not considered at this time. If you are interested in a double major or minor you should meet with your OASA Counselor.
There are a couple of courses you can take which will give you credit: 95, 194, 195, 199. More information can be found at that link.
Lower division research is SRP 99 and information can be found at that link.
For HSSEAS students, 99 contract forms must be submitted week 1 of the Fall, Winter, Spring term, to 6426BH, for review and approval. After HSSEAS approval, SRP add deadline, to submit contract form to SRP Office, is Friday at 5pm, second week of Fall, Winter, Spring term. For summer, contracts for all sessions are due to the SRP Office the Friday of 2nd week during Session A/6 wk.
Students following the 2006 or later catalog years, are required the technical breadth requirement.
Students must declare their area using CourseWeb.
Instructions for declaring your technical breadth area on courseweb are as
1. Login to http://courseweb.seas.ucla.edu
2. At [My Courseweb], in "My Profile" box, click on "About Me"
3. Locate "Technical Breadth Area" in the "View/Edit Profile Information"
box and select your TBA.
Undeclared Engineering majors are guaranteed the major of their choice if they meet the following THREE criteria:
- Declare your major between the end of Fall quarter of your freshman year and the end of Fall quarter of your sophomore year.
- Have a cumulative GPA of 3.0 at the time you declare.
- Take and pass the Engineering 98 class.
If you do not meet all three of the above requirements, you may still declare a major, but you are not guaranteed to get the major you want. Students applying for impacted majors should make sure that they meet all three criteria prior to applying.
This guarantee only applies toward the first major change. Any subsequent major changes are not guaranteed, therefore make sure you are applying for a major you are genuinely interested in.
To declare your major you must:
- Fill out a Change of Major Petition (available at 6426 Boelter Hall).
- Submit a short (2-3 paragraphs) essay explaining your interest in the major and attach it to the Change of Major Petition.
- Please remember that Change of Major Petitions are only accepted during Weeks 6 & 7 of each quarter.
I am following the 2005-06, or later, catalog and I heard that the ethics courses (ENGR 183EW (formerly 183), ENGR 185EW (formerly 185), *BIOENGR 165) would satisfy the GE Writing II requirement - true or false?
For those students that are following the 2005-2006 and later catalogs (2006-07, 2007-08 etc), where Writing II is required, completing ENGR 183EW (formerly 183) or ENGR 185EW (formerly 185) or BIOENGR 165 EW (formerly 165) will satisfy the Writing II Requirement and you no longer need to take an additional "W" Writing II course. Students must earn a grade of "C" or higher in the ethics course to satisfy the writing requirement.
Opportunities – MentorSEAS, Scholarships, Student Organizations
MentorSEAS is the official UCLA Engineering school-wide mentorship program designed to provide guidance, support, and networking of social, professional, and academic relationships to first year freshmen and transfer students in the School. Mentors (continuing engineering students) serve as role models by providing advice, being a good support system, and to assist with the transition to UCLA. Please visit the official MentorSEAS site for more information about this great resource.
For current scholarship information for undergraduate HSSEAS students, as well as links to other sources on campus, go to Scholarships.
HSSEAS Office of Academic and Student Affairs (OASA)
Policy and Procedure on Requests to Post Announcements, or Mass Email Students, Concerning Opportunities and Campus Events
Central School units such as the Office of Academic and Student Affairs and SEASnet are normally unable to comply with requests from groups to send mass emails to HSSEAS students. We do however realize that it is important for organizations to get their messages out to our students; therefore, we encourage the following options.
If you are:
(a) HSSEAS Engineering Student Organization
Please refer to the following communication tools
(b) School of Engineering (HSSEAS) Academic Departments or a Group wanting to send a notice to
students in a particular HSSEAS department:
Each department MSO can authorize staff it wants to have access to Courseweb, which will allow the department to email students in its department. Sending announcements is up to the discretion of each department. HSSEAS departments who wish to send a notice to all HSSEAS students can request a posting on SEASnet's MOTD and the LCD panels.
(c) Industrial Affiliates or Other Company Employers
In an attempt to disseminate all internship/job opportunities and advertise all on campus industry recruitment events, we have created the HSSEAS Internship/Job Clearinghouse website.
During the intense recruitment season, the month leading to the UCLA Career Center Engineering & Technical Career Fairs, we send out 2 e-mail blasts a week (on Tue. & Thur.). During the rest of the year, only 1 e-mail blast is sent a week. In that e-mail blast, we list all new internship/job postings that have been added to the HSSEAS Internships/Jobs Clearinghouse website and reference all new events that have been added to the recruitment calendar.If you have an internship/job opportunity or on campus recruitment event you would like us to post and include in our e-mail blast, please e-mail William Herrera, email@example.com, and cc our clerk firstname.lastname@example.org with a pdf attachment of the posting and/or text you would like us to use.
Industrial Affiliates or Other Company Employers may also want to
work directly with the HSSEAS student organizations
who can assist with scheduling on-campus recruitment events.
may want to submit a Registrar's Service Request (RSR)
The Registrar’s Service Request (RSR) application is used by staff, faculty, and student organizations to submit requests for student data.
Services do include mass e-mails to students
If you will have 105 or more quarter units of credit at the end of the Spring quarter, you WILL NOT get credit for any course taken at a community college. You may only receive credit for courses completed at another 4 year institution. HSSEAS students who need or want to repeat UCLA course must repeat the course at UCLA.
The DPR was designed for students in the College of Letters & Science and shows the Admissions Office's evaluation of your transfer credit, NOT the HSSEAS evaluation. The HSSEAS evaluation normally gives more usable credit, because it reflects your major requirements, which the DPR does not. To verify what credit you have see a Counselor, 6426BH.
The Henry Samueli School of Engineering and Applied Science (HSSEAS) does not permit continuing HSSEAS students to enroll in courses toward degree completion through UCLA Extension’s Concurrent Enrollment program. There are no exceptions to this policy. Please see this memo from Associate Dean Wesel.
