Summer Coursework at Other Institutions

Summer is a good opportunity to take additional coursework to maintain or speed up your academic progress at UC Merced. Before enrolling in coursework over summer, see your Academic Advisor to determine the applicability of potential coursework to your program.

California Community Colleges

ASSIST.org
ASSIST is an online student-transfer information system that shows how course credits earned at one public California college or university can be applied when transferred to another. Utilize this website when looking to find courses to take over summer at a community college. Note: Only lower division courses are offered at community colleges.


Repeating a Course

If you need to attempt a course for a second time, please complete the Course Repeat Request form. Processing Time: Generally 2-3 business days. You will be notified via email once your request has been processed.

If this will be your third (or subsequent) attempt at the particular course you were trying to repeat, you will need to fill out a "Subsequent Course Repeat" form, which can be found on the Registrar's website.


Requesting a Prerequisite Override

If you are interested in taking a course but have not completed the prerequisite(s), you will need permission from the instructor to enroll in the course. Email the instructor of the course and request permission to enroll without the prerequisite; if the instructor allows you into the course forward their approval email to ssha.advising@ucmerced.edu and include your full name, student ID, current delcared major, and course name and number (ex. ECON 100).


Emailing SSHA Advising and your Academic Advisor

If you are requesting information from our office and/or your academic advisor it is important that you follow the following professional email protocol:
