Because of high demand, it can be difficult to sign up for a UCB class.Here's what to expect:
- Classes sell out very quickly, sometimes within an hour of being posted.
- You will not have to wait until the classes that are currently posted end, we will add more soon.
- If you don't see a class that fits your schedule, we probably offer it but it's sold out.
- New classes are added constantly, we recommend checking frequently.
- We offer classes morning, afternoon and evenings 7 days a week.
