STUDENTS

Students participating in the Summer Sessions program have access to valuable resources, services and learning opportunities. We hope you take advantage of all that is available to you.

Transcripts

The transcript is a permanent record that reflects all undergraduate and graduate work completed at UCLA. It lists courses, units, grades, cumulative grade-point average, transfer credits, total units, and work in progress in chronological order.

Ordering a transcript can be done online through MyUCLA. Those requiring expedited or special delivery can submit a Transcript Request Form (PDF). Transcript Request Forms can be downloaded online here.

Requests are not processed if students have outstanding financial, academic, or administrative obligations to the University.

NOTE: Current or newly admitted UCLA students will have their grades appear on their UCLA transcript immediately after grades are submitted by the course instructor. Current or newly admitted visiting UC students will have their grades appear on their home UC campus's transcript in October or November.

Grades

Enrolled students are expected to complete all assigned coursework, take all examinations, attend class regularly, and submit all required work by the end of the session.

No part of the coursework may be continued beyond the close of the course unless prearranged by the student and the instructor.

The work of all students at UCLA is reported in terms of grades. Instructors are required to assign a final grade for each student enrolled in a course.

For more information on UCLA’s grade policy, visit the Registrar’s website.


Grading Basis

Some courses offer the option to choose from either letter grading, P/NP (pass/no pass), or S/U (satisfactory/unsatisfactory, used for those with a bachelor's degree). Other courses require a specific grading basis and cannot be changed. For classes that only have one grade type option, you will not be able to change the grading option.

Courses with both the letter grading and P/NP or S/U option will be assigned a letter grade by default unless you specify your grade type to be otherwise.

Courses taken for P/NP or S/U might not count toward graduation requirements. Please be sure to consult an academic adviser before taking courses on the P/NP or S/U basis.

Summer courses with optional grading basis can be changed on MyUCLA until the following deadlines:

Credits

UCLA is on the quarter system. As a general guide, a semester unit is worth 1.5 quarter units (e.g., 4 quarter units = 2.5 semester units).

UCLA courses are generally accepted for transfer credit, but all decisions on transferability rest with the home institution.

Students should get advance approval of their UCLA Summer Sessions course selections from the home institution prior to registration.

Final Examinations

The final examination is usually given during the last scheduled class meeting. Exceptions are noted in the Schedule of Classes. When a course requires a final examination, there can be no individual exemptions.

NOTE: A course cannot be dropped or removed from your record if you make any attempt to take the final examination.
