Adding the Math Placement calendar to your calendar

You can add the Math Placement Important Dates to your calendar, so that upcoming math placement and enrollment-related events will automatically appear in your calendar.  Set reminders and/or notifications for a few weeks, days, or hours ahead of the events and opportunities you're interested in, so that you're prepared when the big day arrives.

WARNING: this calendar isn't all-inclusive! Check with your college and Undergraduate Advising for information about other important events and deadlines.

To add a Google calendar to your computer, iPhone, iPad, or Android device, follow Google's instructions to Add someone else's Google calendar, using the Add Using a Link option.

The ICAL link for the Math Placement calendar is

https://calendar.google.com/calendar/ical/ucsc.edu_7r0n3ib85a8goutkupsg5i6s0k%40group.calendar.google.com/public/basic.ics

That should all be one long line, starting with https and ending with ics.

Out with the old, in with the new

When you've completed your Math Placement, you can unsubscribe from the calendar.
