Thank you for your interest in the UC Davis Open Campus program and for your ongoing patience and understanding during this unprecedented time.

Due to COVID-19 and the subsequent suspension of most campus services, UC Davis lectures and discussion sections, instruction will be offered through remote means, such as web conferencing (e.g., Zoom), lecture capture, Canvas tools and other methods. The Open Campus enrollment process has been modified to ensure learners continue to be able to enroll in courses despite these changes.

How to Enroll


The Open Campus program makes it possible for anyone to take UC Davis courses, even if you’re not enrolled as a student. Through this program, you’ll have access to distinguished faculty as you study at one of the top-rated public universities in the world. Open Campus students pay on a per-unit basis and are admitted with instructor approval and when space is available.
