This is the final day of the spring 2012 quarter.
You can continue to enroll in fall 2012 classes up to 19 credits through July 11th, 2012 and starting again August 6th, 2012. Fall enrollment is blocked for continuing students from July 12th-August 5th, 2012 to allow new students to enroll during summer orientation programming. We know you are busy preparing for finals, but don’t forget to fill out your class schedule for fall soon. Classes may be full on August 6 when enrollment reopens. Full-time students should be enrolled in at least 12 credits for fall, with 15 credits or more preferred.
If a class offers a wait list enrollment option, then you can begin to enroll in wait-list classes starting August 6th, 2012.
Starting the first day of instruction for fall 2012, which is Thursday, September 27th, students holding a 3.0 GPA or higher may enroll in up to 22 credits without permission from their college; however, to exceed 22 credits permission must be obtained from your college. Those that do not meet the GPA requirement, wanting to enroll in more than 19 credits, must obtain permission from their college adviser.

It may seem like a long time from now, but make a note that instruction for fall 2012 begins Thursday, September 27th. The quarter officially begins on Saturday, September 22nd. See you then!
You may begin checking your spring 2012 grades on your student portal on Wednesday, June 20th. Colleges will conduct academic standing reviews once grades are received. If you think you may fall below good academic standing after your spring grades are assigned, please check with your college academic adviser for important academic review information.
Question: What happens if you enroll in classes and then don’t show up for fall quarter? Answer: You are billed and liable for FULL registration fees.
If you are NOT planning to return to UCSC for fall 2012, see your college academic adviser before the end of spring quarter to petition to withdraw or take a leave of absence from the university (unless you apply to graduate for spring or summer). Notifying the university that you do not plan to attend via the withdrawal or leave of absence petition will cancel your registration fees and remove you from your enrolled fall classes. If you wait until the beginning of fall quarter to petition for a withdrawal or leave of absence, the effective date of your withdrawal or leave will be the date your college is notified that you are not attending UCSC (which, if after the first day of instruction, could result in a loss of thousands of dollars of registration fees). For the petition and additional information visit the following link: http://advising.ucsc.edu/student/loa/index.html.
Summer orientation for new students will take place on the dates listed below. On these dates, most college advisers will be out of their offices for the entire day. If you need academic advising during the summer, please phone or e-mail ahead to determine the best time to meet with an adviser.
- Tuesday, July 17th
- Wednesday, July 18th
- Friday, July 20th
- Saturday, July 21st

The spring quarter is finally wrapping up and it has been a long academic year full of finals, studying, late nights and tons of reading and writing. Once your spring quarter is complete and your finals are behind you, it is time to reward yourself! Everyone needs some downtime after a stressful period of time. Whether it is sleeping for 12 hours, getting a massage, going to the beach, taking a trip, reading for FUN, or just spending time with your friends and family, plan to reward yourself after finals are complete. Use your reward as the carrot, dangling at the end of the stick driving you toward the finish line! You can do it and you deserve some YOU time! Good luck with finals and have a wonderful summer break!
