Having Trouble Enrolling In Calculus?

There are a number of reasons why students trying to enroll in Calculus class may receive errors like: "Unable to add this class - requisites have not been met." The Calculus Enrollment page covers most issues that students have with enrollment. Please consult that page and if you are still having issues, contact the Department Office.

The most common issues are:

  • Not adding the co-requisite workshop
  • The 1-unit workshop putting you over your unit cap
  • Trying to add a restricted section--check the Non-Restricted Course List
  • Trying to add a section that is not open (closed and waitlisted courses won't work)

Enrollment in 100W

Since the Math Department will not be offering Math 100W, all Math Majors can take Engr 100W instead. Students will be able to add any section of Engr 100W with a permission number issued by the Math Office. To request a permission number, please fill out the Engr 100W Registration Request Form.

Registration for Summer Classes

Registration for the summer session will reopen June 6. Students who would like to enroll in classes for any of the 3 sessions should contact the instructor to obtain a permission number. 

The add deadline for all 3 sessions is June 13. After June 13, students who want to add classes will need to submit a Late Enrollment Petition.

More information and class schedules can be found at the Summer Session Website.

Math 161A Offered Summer 2016

Math 161A is being offered this summer. This course can be used as an upper division elective for Math minors and some majors.

If you need to retake Math 161A: Summer session is the best time to take it; sections of 161A during the regular Fall and Spring sessions often fill up before the first day of classes.

Repeating a lower division Math Class more than twice

At the request of colleagues in Physics and Engineering, the Math Department voted on a new policy for students registering in a lower division math course for the third (or more) time. There is a special form entitled Repeating a Course for More Than Two Times Petition(pdf) which the instructor must sign for the student to be allowed to register in a course for the third (or more) time.  The Math Department is now asking their instructors teaching lower division math courses during the regular school year not sign such forms and let students know that they are only allowed to take a course for the third time during the summer where they pay the full cost and they are less likely to be taking up a space from a student who is taking the course for the first time.


Math 30PL

Math 30PL covers the same material as Math 30P. It is taught in a large lecture format with small lab sections. Anyone who has passed Math 19 with a "C" or better or who took the Calculus Placement and placed into Math 30P or Math 30. Students who pass Math 30PL are eligible to enroll in Math 31.

The Math 30PL lecture meets at MWF from 10:30-11:50 in YUH 124. If you are interested in adding the class, please attend the lecture and one of the labs and fill out this Math 30PL Add Request Form
