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 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'swebsite. If you need to attempt a course in the Natural Science for a third time (or subsequent) time you need to complete this form.

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.

ECON 100).
