Normally students can enroll in all courses on their own. However, many students are blocked from enrolling in some courses that have prerequisites. This is because sometimes the enrollment system is unable to interpret course equivalencies from other schools, or whether you may have received AP credit for some prerequisites. If you took the equivalent of LS 7A elsewhere, and you try to enroll in a course for which LS 7A is a prerequisite, the enrollment system can only look to see whether you specifically took LS 7A at UCLA. It can’t tell whether you’ve been given credit on your DARS, no matter what. Whenever this situation arises, contact the department of the course in which you want to enroll directly (for LS 7B, for example, this would be the Life Sciences Core office), and they will check your DARS to see whether the list in question is on your list of transferred courses (regardless of whether you’ve been given credit for the major) and enroll you.
