What is MyUCLA?

MyUCLA is UCLA’s student record access system. It offers real-time access to your official student records and lets you update them instantly. Students can also order transcripts on MyUCLA.

 

Can I give someone else access to my records via MyUCLA?

You can authorize third party access to allow a third party view-only access to your student records and direct access to your BruinBill account. In order to set up access, a third party establishes his or her own separate UCLA Logon ID and password, communicates this information (name and UCLA Logon ID) directly to you, and you can select which MyUCLA features the third party can view or access in Settings. You may revoke or change access features at any time.

 

What special activities are available for Summer Sessions students who live on campus?

The Office of Residential Life organizes several optional trips and activities for Summer Sessions students on weekends and evenings. Some examples are trips to Disneyland, Magic Mountain, Universal Studios, Catalina Island, and outlet mall shopping excursions on the weekends. There are also trips to local attractions such as the beach, movie nights, baseball games, and bowling alleys.

Trips outside the LA area are organized through California Tours at an additional cost. Past trips have included Las Vegas, San Francisco, and the Grand Canyon. Sign-up sheets and tickets will be available in Reiber Hall, and all Summer Sessions students are welcome to participate. There are extra fees for these trips, and transportation is typically included in those costs.

What is a UCLA Bruincard?

A UCLA BruinCard is a mandatory student identification card used to confirm status and eligibility for services. It serves as a library card, a student ticket discount card, a debit card for purchases on and off campus, and a residence hall meal and access card.

You do not need to present a BruinCard to attend classes.

Are classes at UCLA Extension the same as Summer Sessions?

No. UCLA Extension offers continuing education at the college level for adult students. Enrollment in Extension does not constitute enrollment in UCLA, and Extension courses do not appear on your UCLA transcript, although some of the classes will transfer for credit. The majority of classes are in the evening and on weekends.

For more information, visit UCLA Extension.
