    I'm thinking about taking upper div science courses through this school (not through a formal postbac). i finished my prereqs but need to take at least a year's worth of courses to make up for my less-than-par past.

    has anyone done this? DIY at UCI? how accessible are the classes? if you've taken more than 8 units (as they currently allow), how easy was it for you to get petitioned in?

    Hey, I did a DIY postbac at UCI. It was pretty easy to petition for more than 8 units. The hardest part was having to wait until the end of the 2nd week of the quarter to get our classes signed by the department. However, I got most of the classes...some classes will seem full at first but students drop but popular classes will be full from the beginning and stay that way. I had a good experience though. Good luck.

    "Currently the fees for an undergraduate course (upper and lower division are all the same cost) is $117.00 per unit with the first unit costing, $247.00. Please be aware that some courses do cost more than the unit based fees. "

    quoting ACCESS UCI Coordinator.

    so 1 4-unit class costs $598. :eek:

    You can actually take any undergraduate course as long as the class is not full, has prereq for that course, and signature from the department.
