The Open Campus Program, administered by UCSC Extension, allows you to enroll in courses offered on the UC Santa Cruz campus without being formally admitted to a degree program.
Explore our new DEI program where courses are tailored to professionals in education, leadership, health, and training. We offer you concrete tools to reflect, evaluate roles and identities, and navigate a more just society.
