Summer Online Courses


ACADEMIC COURSES:

ONLINE

Fees

Summer fees reflect the total number of units you enroll in. Below is a summary of fees that apply to those who enroll in online courses only.

If you enroll in a course that has any on-campus component, applicable campus/registration, health insurance (international students only), and/or iStart@UCLA fees (international students) will be assessed.

An F-1 visa is not required for those who would be otherwise categorized as International students for Summer Sessions registration purposes if enrolled in online courses only.

Please note that the non-refundable deposit of $150 required of all visiting "online" summer students for registration is not an additional fee and will apply toward the summer tuition balance.

All fees are subject to change without prior notice.

Living outside the U.S. or being a citizen of a different country doesn't automatically classify a student as international. If you answer no to ALL of the questions below, you are an international student for summer registration purposes and will require an F-1 visa to participate:

  • Are you a U.S. citizen or permanent resident, i.e., a Green Card holder?
  • Are you an international student currently studying in the US and returning to the same school after the summer?
  • Do you intend to enroll only in academic courses that are offered completely online?

International students may enroll in a minimum of 8 units and a maximum of 20 units per session. Most courses are valued at 4 or 5 units each. We recommend taking 8 to 12 units due to the intensive course format.

For non-UCLA, visiting Summer students, registration is not complete until the deposit is paid in full. Those who are not prepared to pay can submit their registration form and retrieve registration at another time to make the deposit.

 

This deposit is not refundable under any circumstances even if you drop all courses before they begin. If you withdraw, this deposit will appear as processing fee charge on your BruinBill account.

 

SUMMARY OF FEES

2017 Unit Fee $273 per unit (UC undergraduate) / $342 per unit (all others)
IEI Fee $61 per summer (students without a bachelor's degree)
Document Fee

Document fee covers a lifetime supply of official transcripts mailed by USPS first class mail. Summer-only visiting students will be assessed a one-time document fee during their first summer term; returning summer-only students will not be subject to the document fee. For more information, please click here.

$50 assessed only for the first summer term at UCLA
Late Add Fee
A non-refundable late fee of $50 will be assessed for each course added after Friday of second week of the session. No late fees are assessed if a student is re-adding a class that was dropped, switching sections of the same class, or adding any 99, 195-199, 596-599 courses.
$50 per class added after second week

 

In addition, a small number of courses carry additional Materials Use Fees. If you enroll in any of those courses, you will be assessed a material use fee for the course.

 

FEE CALCULATION EXAMPLE
The following example based on the UC undergraduate status is intended to help you estimate your fees. If enrolled in two courses that carry 4 and 5 units respectively, your fees are estimated at $2,626 regardless of whether the two courses are offered in Session A or Session C:

Summer Fee Calculation Example

4-unit course unit fees $273 x 4 = $1,092
5-unit course unit fees $273 x 5 = $1,365
IEI fee $61
Document Fee $50
ESTIMATED TOTAL $2,568

This is only an estimate, and the actual amount may vary depending on whether you are a UC undergraduate student or have attended UCLA Summer Sessions before, whether your courses carry IEI and/or material use fees, or when courses are added.


INSTRUCTIONAL ENHANCEMENT FEE
An Instructional Enhancement Initiative (IEI) Fee will be assessed to students without a bachelor's degree. Individuals with a Bachelor’s Degree will not be assessed this fee.

Payment Schedule

Please make sure your balance is paid in full according to the payment schedule* below to avoid enrollment cancellations, holds on student records, and collection actions.

Please note that payment schedules vary depending on whether you are a UC student and when you enroll.
