WHO IS A US HIGH SCHOOL STUDENT?

During the summer, UCLA opens its door to high school students as well, and we invite you to come and study in a welcoming environment that appreciates diversity and global perspectives.

UCLA Summer Sessions offers high school students two ways to engage in a college experience that will challenge and inspire them:

  • Individual UCLA Academic Courses; or
  • Specialized Precollege Summer Institutes
Students must be at least 15 years of age by program start date to enroll in academic courses. High school students enrolled in academic courses may apply for housing through UCLA Housing Services if they are 16 years of age or older. Housing for academic courses does not provide supervision.

High school students may also consider Precollege Summer Institutes. Students who are 14 years of age or older by program start date may participate in our Precollege Summer Institutes, most of which offer supervised housing for participants.

 

If you can answer yes to any of the questions below, you are considered a U.S. high school student for our registration purposes:

The thousands of high school students who have joined us in the past report that UCLA Summer Sessions is an invigorating and unforgettable experience academically, culturally, and socially, and we hope to see you this summer.

 

 

ACADEMIC COURSES

Summer Sessions is a unique opportunity to advance your academic career. During the summer, many academic courses that make up UCLA's regular curriculum are offered in two sessions, Session A and Session C . With over 100 courses to choose from, including online courses, you can have an unforgettable summer no matter where you are.

While the majority of courses are 6-weeks long, a small number of courses in Session A last for 8-10 weeks. If you are interested in a course that is offered during Session A, please be sure to check the Schedule of Classes to verify the course length. All Session C courses are 6-weeks long.

UCLA ONLINE COURSES offer you the opportunity to earn credit anytime, anywhere. UCLA academic courses delivered online carry the same unit value and UCLA degree credit. Whether you have other summer activities planned or you wish to stay in your hometown, online courses provide an alternative solution to your academic needs.

If you enroll in online courses only, the campus fee will be waived. Please note that "hybrid" courses that have components offered both online and on UCLA campus are not considered online courses for summer registration purposes.
