If enrolled in online courses only, excluding hybrid courses that have both online and on-campus components, students who would be otherwise considered as International for Summer Sessions registration purposes are not required to have an F-1 visa since participation in UCLA summer online courses does not entail entry into the U.S. If you wish to add any course of which instruction takes place on-campus, whether partly or entirely, please refer to VISA REQUIREMENTS of the ACADEMIC COURSES: INTERNATIONAL STUDENTS or ACADEMIC COURSES: INTERNATIONAL HIGH SCHOOL STUDENTS pages.
- 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 completly online?
International students for Summer Sessions registration purposes 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.
