Course Planner

Course planning is one of the most important parts of navigating through your time at UCLA. Scheduling can be icky, confusing, and even frustrating. To remedy this, feel free to use our four-year sample course map as a guide to navigate through scheduling. This was compiled from course resource sheets provided by the department. However, their documents can be confusing at times.

Choosing Math Courses — Undergraduate Course Landing

Need help figuring out when to take a particular math class? Fear no more! Check out the Math Undergraduate Course Landing page to see which professors will be teaching in Fall, Winter, and Spring. Click on either the Lower Division Tentative Schedule link or the Upper Division Tentative Schedule link to see a dropdown of math courses.

However, Math 61 should be finished as soon as possible (with a good professor) so you can take CS 180 (Algorithms), one of the most important computer science courses.

Upper Division Math Courses

Want to take upper division math courses but can’t seem to make it in during first or second pass? The Math Department has an “unofficial waitlist” you can sign up on to get placed on a waitlist for a specific lecture here. Several students end up dropping during the first two weeks, and some honors level classes such as Math 115AH will even over-enroll the class.


Your Degree Progress/Audit Report (DARS) is an important document that lets you see what classes you need to complete to graduate. Counselors recommend checking your DARS at least once a quarter, especially while you are deciding classes for the next quarter to ensure you graduate within four years. Access your DARS by going to Academics > Academic Profile > Degree Progress/Audit Report.

Your DARS is an extremely important component of your schedule planning. Remember to always check it at least once a quarter!
