- Colleges across UCR campus have varied policies related to reviewing timeframes of Concurrent Enrollment request forms. Please note that some colleges begin reviewing forms week 3 of the quarter.

On the Log-in Screen: Use the left column for "I have an account already." Your username would be your email address provided on your form & you can use the forgot password and/or username features if needed. After accessing your student portal, you will find the invoice within your navigational menu under "my invoices."

Student Rights and Responsibilities
Students are responsible for obtaining signatures, filling out forms properly, paying fees, meeting deadlines, having the instructor add them to the class rosters, informing the UCR University Extension Student Services Office of changes of address, etc. As a University Extension student, you have only limited access to regular campus services. University Extension provides an application for library privileges upon request.
Credit and Transferable Units
Concurrent course units are transferable to a degree-granting institution under certain circumstances. Please consult with that school regarding the transferability of units. University Extension does not grant degrees. Students being admitted or readmitted to UC Riverside with XRC prefix courses receive grade points, as well as unit credit. Students expecting to graduate with a bachelor's degree from UC Riverside are cautioned that XRC prefix courses are not counted as taken in residence at UC Riverside, and 35 of the final 45 units completed by each student prior to receiving the baccalaureate degree must be earned in residence at UC Riverside.
Grades for concurrent courses are recorded only at UCR University Extension. They are not automatically transferred to the UC Riverside Registrar. Transcripts must be requested electronically or in person. They are available for a fee of $13 per copy. There is an additional $7 rush fee for transcripts produced while you wait. Get more information on the transcripts page.
Concurrent student names will not appear on the regular class roster. Instructors will receive a grade roster from the UCR University Extension Student Services Office at the end of the quarter. Grade reports are mailed to students after grades are posted.
Because University Extension is self-supporting and does not participate in financial aid programs, no financial aid is available. For information on private loan programs, contact the University Extension Student Services Office at 951.827.4105.
A $5 fee will be charged for transfer from one course to another. No transfers after the third week of the quarter.
