The course schedule is a collaborative effort between department SAOs/CAOs, Faculty, the Course Scheduler, and the Office of the Registrar. Departments work to compose the teaching plan for a given quarter based on budgets and student needs. Once the teaching plan is complete, it is then provided to the Course Scheduler. At that time, the Course Scheduler begins to work with faculty to collect all schedule details, all in adherence to Room Scheduling policy. Once all the schedule details have been gathered and a course schedule has been completed for each department, the course schedule is submitted to the Registrar’s Office for classroom placement and all other schedule finalizations so the course schedule(s) can be approved. The approved course schedule by the Registrar’s Office will then become available for student enrollment.
BioAdmin provides course scheduling services to the following seven departments:
- Biomedical Research
- Ecology and Evolutionary Biology
- Computational & Systems Biology IDP
- Integrative Biology and Physiology
- Molecular, Cell, and Developmental Biology
- Molecular, Cellular & Integrative Physiology (Graduate)
- Neuroscience IDP
For the Department of Life Sciences Core Education, please contact Lily Yanez (email@example.com) in regards to course scheduling.

Email Notices to Students and Instructors
Course Evaluations are conducted and managed by the CAT EIP Office. The EIP Office sends an email to students and instructors when the evaluation period begins. The email lists the specific course sections that are being evaluated and the deadline for students to submit their responses. When the evaluation period ends, the EIP Office sends instructors an email that will have a direct link to MyUCLA.
Please Note: Entering grades before the evaluation window closes prevents students from submitting further evaluations for that class.
For more information on the email notices both students and instructors receive, please view the Online Evaluation Email Notifications and Email Notices to Students and Instructors pages on the UCLA Center for the Advancement of Teaching website.
How Students Access to Online Evaluations
Students will receive an email from the EIP Office where it will have a direct link to MyUCLA. On MyUCLA, students are able to retrieve the evaluations by clicking on the Classes menu and then Evaluation of Instruction. For more information on how students can access the online evaluations, please visit Student Access to Online Evaluations.
How Instructors Access the Evaluation Reports
Once the evaluations begin, instructors are able to log in to MyUCLA to access the Classes page, where it will indicate if there are courses with online evaluations in progress. On the Evaluation of Instruction Reports page, they may view these reports any time after the evaluation period is closed and the grades for the class have been submitted on time.
Please Note: If grades for a class are submitted after the Gradebook due date, instructor(s) would need to obtain the evaluation reports from the Department’s Evaluation Coordinator, who is Ana Padilla. She can be reached at email@example.com. For more information on how instructors can access the online evaluations, please visit How Instructors Access the Evaluation Reports.
If you are not able to access your course evaluations or have any questions, please contact Ana Padilla at firstname.lastname@example.org or 310-825-1268 for assistance or the EIP Office at email@example.com or 310-825-6939.

Instructors are able to order course textbooks online directly through ASUCLA Bookstore at https://ucla.verbacollect.com/login at the beginning of each quarter each course in the following quarter. Submit all textbook requisitions by the “priority” deadline. Please visit the UCLA textbook requisition website to check on the status of each class’ textbook adoption. When adopting materials, please mark “reviewed.” This will route the requisition to the next step. If no materials will be adopted, please also mark “reviewed.”
Textbook and Desk Copy Due Dates
The BioAdmin Scheduler, Ana Padilla, will be able to assist instructors with ordering desk copies. TA Desk Copies should be sent to her at firstname.lastname@example.org with the following information:
