Have you always wanted to learn about Latin American history? Does your high school senior want to get some calculus or computer science credits before heading off to a UC in the fall? Or maybe you want to hone your writing skills.
Consider a UC Online class. Nine classes will open for registration on March 3, and you and your family members get a 33 percent discount on tuition.
UC Online Education (UCOE - http://uconline.edu), in partnership with systemwide Human Resources – Employee Relations, is offering the discount on UCOE courses for the term beginning April 2014. Faculty, staff and their spouses or domestic partners and tax dependents are eligible for the discount, provided they are not current UC students.
Registration opens March 3 for the following courses:
- Terrorism & War (Science and Society 7V)
- Global Climate Change: Convergence of Biological, Geophysical, & Social Sciences (Science and Society 25V)
- Introduction to Writing and Rhetoric (Writing 39A)
- Diversity, Disagreement & Democracy: Can't We All Just Get Along? (Political Science 115D)
- Introduction to Computer Science for Science, mathematics, and Engineering I (Computer Science 10V)
- Introduction to Latin America (History 75V)
- Calculus for Science, Engineering, and Mathematics (Math 19A)
- Calculus for Science, Engineering, and Mathematics (Math 19B)
- Introduction to Fresh Water: Processes and Policy (Environmental Science 65)
Students in UC Online Education classes will not just be watching videos, but instead will be taking advantage of a robust online community, including active discussions where students interact with each other and with instructors on a regular basis. UC instructors teach the classes and students get UC credit.
The UCOE employee discount is a pilot program and is in addition to, and not a substitute for, the current employee-only tuition discount program for staff admitted to the university provided for in regents' policy 7502.
Participation by represented employees is subject to collective bargaining. Please check with your representative to ensure your eligibility prior to beginning the registration process.
Registration closes March 30, but spaces in some classes are limited so don't wait until the deadline to register.
Classes begin March 31.
