Academic courses are offered during two sessions, Session A and Session C.
While the majority of courses are 6-weeks long, a small number of courses in Session A last for 8-10 weeks. If you are interested in a course that is offered during Session A, please be sure to check the Schedule of Classes to verify the course length. All Session C courses are 6-weeks long.

Enrolled students are expected to complete all assigned coursework, take all examinations, attend class regularly, and submit all required work by the end of the session.
No part of the coursework may be continued beyond the close of the course unless prearranged by the student and the faculty.
The work of all students at UCLA is reported in terms of grades. Instructors are required to assign a final grade for each student enrolled in a course.
Letter grades A, B, C, and D may be modified by a plus or minus suffix. In addition, the following grades are used to report the quality of student work at UCLA:
|P||Passed (achievement at grade C level or better; used only for undergraduate study)|
|NP||Not Passed (used only for undergraduate study)|
|S||Satisfactory (achievement at grade B level or better; used only for graduate study)|
|U||Unsatisfactory (used only for graduate study)|
GRADE POINTS AND GRADE-POINT AVERAGE Grade points per unit are assigned by the Registrar as follows:
Courses in which students receive a P or S grade may count toward satisfaction of degree requirements, but these grades, as well as DR, I, and NR, are disregarded in determining the grade-point average. NR indicates that no grade was received from the instructor.
The grade-point average is determined by dividing the total number of grade points earned by the total number of units attempted. For example, if you earn a B- in a 4-unit course and an A in a 5 unit course, your GPA would be 30.8 (2.7 x 4 units + 4 x 5 units) divided by 9 (total number of units taken). i.e., 3.42.
For more information on grades, see the UCLA General Catalog.
CREDITS UCLA is on the quarter system. As a general guide, a semester unit is worth 1.5 quarter units (e.g., 4 quarter units = 2.5 semester units).
UCLA courses are generally accepted for transfer credit, but all decisions on transferability rest with the home institution.
Students should get advance approval of their UCLA Summer Sessions course selections from the home institution prior to registration.
GRADING BASIS Some courses offer P/NP or S/U grading, as well as letter grading options, while some courses stipulate P/NP, S/U, or letter grading only.
If you enroll in a course that offers only one grading option, you will not be able to change the grading option.
If you enroll in a course with both the P/NP (S/U if it is a graduate course) and letter grading options, you will receive a letter grade by default unless you specify your grading option as P/NP.
Courses taken on a P/NP or S/U basis might not count toward graduation requirements. Please be sure to consult your school before taking courses on the P/NP or S/U basis.
Courses with optional grading basis can be changed to or from P/NP (S/U) on MyUCLA until the following deadlines:
|SESSION A||6-week Course||July 21|
|8-week Course||July 28|
|9- or 10-week Course||August 4|
|SESSION C||All Courses||September 1|
The final examination is usually given during the last scheduled class meeting. Exceptions are noted in the Schedule of Classes. When a course requires a final examination, there can be no individual exemptions.
A course cannot be dropped or removed from your record if you make any attempt to take the final examination.
Special examinations and re-examinations are not permitted in Summer Sessions courses.
However, in compliance with Section 92640(a) of the California Education Code, the University does accommodate requests for alternate examination dates when the scheduled date and time would violate your religious creed.
Accommodation for alternate examination dates should be worked out directly and on an individual basis between the student and faculty member involved.
- In general, you should request an alternate examination date from the instructor during the first two weeks of the session or as soon as possible after a particular examination date is announced by the instructor.
- If you are unable to reach a satisfactory arrangement with the instructor, contact the Office of Summer Sessions, (310) 825-4101, the Ombuds Office, or the Office of the Dean of Students for assistance.
The transcript is a permanent record that reflects all undergraduate and graduate work completed at UCLA. It lists courses, units, grades, cumulative grade-point average, transfer credits, total units, and work in progress in chronological order.
Ordering a transcript should be done online through MyUCLA. Those requiring expedited or special delivery can submit a Transcript Request Form (PDF). Transcript Request Forms can be downloaded or picked up at 1113 Murphy Hall between 9:00 a.m. and 4:00 p.m., Monday – Friday.
Requests are not processed if students have outstanding financial, academic, or administrative obligations to the university.
