Credit / Audit Status

Class sizes are limited. Priority will be given to those who enroll for credit either via our academic host (UC Davis Continuing and Professional Education) or through their home university if USPAS courses are directly co-listed (i.e. Indiana University, MIT, MSU, etc) or are available at their home university via Special Topics courses. Auditors will be admitted on a space-available basis only after those seeking credit / a grade.

International participants not currently in the U.S. may participate but they cannot earn UC Davis Continuing and Professional Education credit. They may ask that their performance be graded and when the session is over the USPAS will provide a letter confirming participation and rating earned.
