Students may verify their enrollment status in a particular course by viewing their Studylist using MyUCLA.

Dropping Courses

IMPORTANT: Please refer to FEES AND PAYMENT in the left menu bar for Summer Sessions refund policies before dropping any course.

A course may not be dropped or removed from your record if you make any attempt to take the final examination.

DROPPING IMPACTED COURSES
Impacted courses may be dropped via MyUCLA until Friday of the first week of the course. After the deadline, impacted courses may be dropped only under extraordinary circumstances.
