Online Instruction Extended Through Spring Quarter
Due to the ongoing global health crisis, UCLA Extension continues remote instruction through Spring Quarter 2021. Enrollment for Spring Quarter begins February 1. Classes begin March 29.
We continue to monitor developments pertaining to COVID-19, including the latest guidance from the State of California and the County of Los Angeles. As always, our priority continues to be the health and safety of our students, staff, and instructors.
Thank you for your understanding and resilience as you look to plan your future studies with us.

Student and Administrative Services Offered Remotely
All UCLA Extension buildings are closed until further notice. Physical location closures include: Gayley Center, 1010 Westwood, Lindbrook Center, the Wilshire administrative building, Downtown L.A. and Woodland Hills.
UCLA Extension representatives are available via phone and email during regular business hours: Monday through Friday, 8:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. (PT).
Available Instruction Methods
While the format of our “online” and “hybrid” instruction methods have remained unchanged, course sections previously offered in-person have transitioned to a virtual classroom format called “remote instruction.” Similar to our traditional classroom offerings, “remote instruction” class sessions are taught in real-time on specific day(s) and time(s) using Zoom.
How to Access Your Course
UCLA Extension utilizes an online learning management system called Canvas. Within Canvas you can interact with your instructor and peers, find course materials, activities, assignments, quizzes, and more. Some courses also use Zoom to conduct scheduled, live-online class sessions.
Details on accessing Canvas will be emailed to you after completing enrollment. Courses in Canvas are typically accessible 2 days before the course start date. If applicable, instructions for accessing and using Zoom will also be provided in Canvas.
