Open Campus


Thank you for your interest in the UC Davis Open Campus program! All Open Campus students must comply with the Visitor UC vaccination policy until they are enrolled in a class. Once enrolled, Open Campus students will follow the UC Student Vaccination Policy. See the Campus Ready site for more information. We will update this site as more details are available. Regardless of vaccination status you must complete a Daily Symptom Survey to enter the UC Davis campus.

How to Enroll


The Open Campus program makes it possible for anyone to take UC Davis courses, even if you’re not enrolled as a student. Through this program, you’ll have access to distinguished faculty as you study at one of the top-rated public universities in the world. Open Campus students pay on a per-unit basis and are admitted with instructor approval and when space is available.
