Welcome to Winter Quarter 2016!

Winter 2016 CoverHappy New Year and welcome to the first day of Winter Quarter 2016 at UCLA Extension! Classes officially begin today, January 4th and end on March 27th. Here’s a few tips to get you started!


Make sure to check your class schedule to confirm you are enrolled in the right class for the quarter and to verify the time, day, and room of each of your classes. Go to www.uclaextension.edu and login to My Extension.  Here, you will not only be able to verify your enrollment, but you can also change your grade credit status, request a withdrawal or refund out of a class.

If you’re enrolled in an online class or a class that uses Canvas, our institutional learning management system (LMS), click here to learn more about how to get set up.


If you are on a wait-list for a class you absolutely need, don’t give up just yet! You may have a chance to get into the class. 

Are you a Candidate in the Interior Design Certificate Program? Are you an international student? Are you enrolled in Financial Aid?

If you answered yes to any of these three questions, then you have wait-list priority! Students with this criteria are automatically bumped to the top of the wait-list—above students who do not fit into these categories—in the order of date they are added.

What happens when you are offered a spot in the class for which you are wait-listed?

As spaces open, wait-listed students are contacted, granted Permission to Enroll (PTE), and provided enrollment instructions.

If you’re lucky enough to be offered a spot in a class you’ve been waiting for, grab it while you can! There are usually many other students on wait-lists and if you do not claim your PTE within a day or two of it being granted, then it will be revoked and the opportunity to enroll will be granted to the next person.

If the class that you were granted PTE for is the only class you want to take this quarter but you’ve already signed up for another class, call the Registration Office at (310) 825-9971 and transfer the payment from your unwanted class to the new class. Depending on the difference in course fees, additional payment may be needed or credit may be added to your student account.

What happens if you don’t receive PTE before the class starts?

You’re not out of luck just yet. Go to the first day of class! Students who do not show up to the class that they are wait-listed for will automatically lose their chance of getting into the class. If space becomes available, instructors typically grant permission to enroll for the wait-listed students who attended the first (and sometimes even second) class meeting.

Online classes are a little trickier. Sometimes online instructors will over-enroll the class to accommodate wait-listed students, so if you are in desperate need to enroll in a class, please let us know. Call (310) 825-9061 or email the Program Rep for the class.

Did you received PTE but no longer need or want to enroll in the class?

If you receive PTE but don’t need the class anymore, please contact the Arc+ID Program Rep for that class and let them know so they can revoke your PTE and remove you from the wait-list.

What happens if you don’t receive PTE at all?

Wait-listed students who remain unsuccessful at getting into the class they want are automatically sent an early notice of all sections of the same course offered in the upcoming term.

You can remove yourself from wait-lists at any time by calling (310) 825-9061.

To prevent yourself from getting on another wait-list, register for classes as soon as the registration period opens! Check the UCLA Extension Academic Calendar or the UCLA Extension catalog (inside the front cover) for registration dates!

Arc_ID Instructor Honored with BAU Institute Residency

UCLA Extension Arc_ID instructor, Betty Merken (pictured above), has been selected as a Summer 2010 Residency Fellow at the BAU Institute.

The mission of the BAU Institute is to support and enhance creativity in arts and architecture while providing an international forum for cultural exchange related to building, arts, and urbanism. Through the residency program creative professionals are provided uninterrupted time for work, reflection, research and interaction in the culturally rich, beautiful seaside city of Otrano, Italy.

Ms. Merken is an artist and architectural Colorist that has taught for the interior design program since 1996. She will be teaching The Language of Color (V4484) Winter Quarter 2010. Whether you are a professional or a beginner, this fun and practical hands-on workshop can help fill your life with exciting colors. Using water-based gouache paint and guided by proven color theory systems, one can learn the “keys” to mixing color as well as how to select and use colors to maximize their effects, create palettes and aesthetic harmony. Participants also explore how colors affect human behavior, mood, and context. This two-day workshop (1 unit) will be on Saturday and Sunday, March 6th and 7th.
