Class Search

During registration each quarter, you can search for information on classes using one of the following tools:

MyUCDavis Schedule Builder

Schedule Builder

New, Changed, and Cancelled Courses

A printed listing of new, changed, and cancelled courses is provided in the current General Catalog Course Supplement and Policies & Requirements Addendum.

Schedule Builder is a new class planning and registration tool available in beta version, which you can use instead of the Class Search Tool or SISWeb. It provides an enhanced real-time class search similar to the Class Search Tool, and also allows you to build and save one or more class schedules with varying CRN's.  Then during your pass appointment, you can register for all of your classes at once or individually during your pass appointment. 

We want to ensure that Schedule Builder meets your needs so we encourage you to try it and send us your feedback. Once you register for classes, you will also be able to see your class schedule in SISWeb as well.

Note that saving classes or schedules in Schedule Builder does not guarantee any enrollment, as the classes offered and number of available seats changes continually before and during registration.

Class Search Tool

Class Search Tool

The Class Search Tool provides enhanced real-time class search by CRN, subject, course number, course title, instructor, day of week, time, former and new/revised General Education course, or whether seats remain open. You have the option of logging onto the Class Search Tool to "save classes" in advance and keep a list of CRN's to help when using SISWeb to register.

Note that saving classes in the Class Search Tool does not guarantee any enrollment, nor does it automatically input CRN's into Schedule Builder or SISWeb. Use the Class Search Tool as a guide only; the classes offered and number of available seats changes continually before and during registration.


You can search for open courses using SISWeb. Your search results tell you the number of seats remaining in the course. For information on searching for courses and how that relates to class registration, see the Registration Menu.

Please note that, while a future term's courses may be viewable in the SISWeb course search feature before the official release of the term's schedule of classes, these early listings are considered to be in the planning stage and may not be accurate.
