QUESTIONS

Will the units I earn at UCLA transfer to my home campus?

Students outside the UC system should verify their school's credit-granting process. Transfer of credit is at the discretion of the receiving institution.

For students from other UC campuses, all UCLA summer activity automatically appears on your home UC campus transcript sometime in October, and the grades you earn at UCLA are included in your home UC campus grade-point average.

Taking courses at UCLA during the summer generates an official UCLA transcript.

What’s the difference between a quarter unit and a semester unit?

To convert quarter units into semester units, multiply the quarter units by .666*.

  • EX. 4 quarter units from UCLA transfers as 2.67 semester units
  • EX. 5 quarter units from UCLA transfers as 3.33 semester units

*Please note, this is just an estimate and conversion may differ between schools. Please verify with your home institution.

 

What is a transcript?

It lists courses, units, grades, cumulative grade-point average, transfer credits, total units, and work in progress in chronological order. For students from other UC campuses, all UCLA summer activity automatically appears on your home UC campus transcript, and the grades you earn at UCLA are included in your home UC campus grade-point average.

How do I order a transcript?

Ordering a transcript can be done online through MyUCLA or by submitting a Transcript Request Form to the Registrar's Office.

You can order your summer transcripts at anytime however, they will not be mailed out until 2-3 weeks after the end of the session.

If I drop a class, will a W appear on my transcript?

No notation will be made on your transcript if you drop an impacted course before 5PM, Friday of the first week of the course or if you drop a non-impacted course before the final examination.

Be sure to verify your Summer Sessions enrollment status. Do not anticipate that the University will automatically drop you from a class due to nonpayment or non-attendance.

You can drop your classes by using MyUCLA or by submitting a Student Update Form to the Summer Sessions Office at 1331 Murphy Hall.
