What do I get for my registration/campus fee?

For more information, please contact the Registrar's Office at (310) 825-1091.
I am a UCLA staff member. Do I qualify for a staff discount?
UCLA and ASUCLA staff employees who wish to enroll in individual academic courses are eligible for a discount during the summer term if they have been employed by UCLA for the previous six months and have a career appointment of at least 50% time or a casual appointment of 100% time.
The discount waives the registration fee ($350 total). UCLA and ASUCLA staff employees pay the remaining per-unit fees at the non-UC student rate.
To apply for a staff discount, please email firstname.lastname@example.org with your nine-digit staff ID after completion of the online registration.
Please note that staff members who are also continuing or admitted UC undergraduate or graduate students are NOT eligible for the discount. Summer Sessions fees for continuing or admitted UC students are automatically assessed at the lower UC student rate.
What is the Instructional Enhancement Initiative Fee?
The Instructional Enhancement Initiative Fee is a course materials fee that is assessed to all students who have not yet received a Bachelor’s Degree. The fee cannot be waived.
The fee helps support the use of technology at UCLA for educational purposes.

What courses are charged a Material Use Fee?
A small number of courses may be assessed an additional Materials Use Fee. This fee helps to cover the cost of equipment, computers, etc. that may not be sufficiently covered with regular summer fees.
To view a list of courses that are assessed the Materials Use Fee (also known as Course Materials and Services fee), please click here.
What is the refund policy?

These fees are 100% NON-refundable after the refund deadline and students are financially liable for all fees if withdrawal occurs beyond those deadlines.
A $150 processing fee ($400 for international students) is non-refundable under any circumstance even if all courses are dropped before instruction begins. In the event of withdrawal prior to the deadlines, the total refund amount will reflect this processing fee on the BruinBill account.
Refunds for current UCLA students will take up to two weeks. For all other students, refunds may take up to three weeks.

SUBJECT TO CHANGE
Please note that summer offerings are subject to change, without prior notice, by action of the academic department offering the course/program.
Changes include, but are not limited to:
Reasonable endeavor will be made to notify students of such changes and suggest alternatives when applicable.
In the event of cancellation, the University is not responsible for any consequential loss or expenses incurred as a result; only the course fee, as well as campus, registration, material and/or IEI fees if applicable will be subject to refund.
I was originally enrolled in 8 units but I’ve added one more unit. Does this affect my summer bill?
Increasing the number of units you are enrolled in will increase your summer bill. View your BruinBill account on MyUCLA after every enrollment transaction and insure your bill is paid in full prior to the payment deadline.
I exchanged my course for another with the same unit value. Does this affect my summer bill?
If exchanged prior to the refund deadline, most likely your BruinBill will reflect the same total. However, a small number of courses assess additional Material Use Fees. Therefore, we highly recommend your view your BruinBill account on MyUCLA after every enrollment transaction.
If exchanged after the refund deadline, you will be financial responsible for both the course you are dropping and the new course you are replacing the class with.
I’m a financial aid student. How many units do I need to take to qualify for summer aid?
The financial aid unit minimums will vary by type of aid.
In general, current UCLA students need to be enrolled in a minimum of half-time (6 units for undergraduates, 4 units for graduates) in order to be eligible for any summer aid.
However, some undergraduate programs (Federal Pell Grant, ACG, SMART Grant and Summer University Grant) require enrollment in 12 units to receive full eligibility.
Therefore, our best recommendation is to consult the financial aid office for recommendation on unit minimums for specific types of aid.
Am I assessed a fee for withdrawing?
Deposits are not required for UCLA students. However, the non-refundable processing fee of $150 will be assessed on your BruinBill if all summer courses are dropped regardless of whether instruction has begun.
Registration is not complete until the $150 deposit ($400 for international students) is paid in full. 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 a processing fee charge on your BruinBill account.
I took less units this summer than I applied for on my financial aid application. What will happen?
The UCLA Financial Aid Office will review all units at the end of the third week of each UCLA Summer Session in order to determine final eligibility for summer aid. Students who are not enrolled in the number of units they indicated on their application will be billed.
Students should be aware that they are responsible for accurately reporting their unit load to Financial Aid. A student who changes the unit load may incur penalties.
For more information, visit the Financial Aid Office.
