Academic Courses: International Students




We are excited that you will be participating in UCLA Summer Sessions!

Please make sure you familiarize yourself with the information below as you will be responsible for understanding UCLA’s policies and regulations. 


Students must abide by the rules and regulations set forth by the Regents of the University of California, on behalf of its Los Angeles campus, including, but not limited to, rules and regulations of the UCLA Office of Summer Sessions and UCLA student code of conduct. You will be expected to meet the highest standards both academically and behaviorally, and will be held fast to a commitment to academic and personal integrity; respect for all members of the community and teaching, research, administration, disciplinary procedures, or other university activities; regard for the basic rules of physical safety; and compliance with directions of university or other public officials. Integrity, excellence, accountability, respect, and service are the founding principles of the True Bruin code. As you enter the UCLA community as a summer Bruin, learn the values of a True Bruin and show your Bruin Pride.

The UCLA Student Conduct Code has been developed to maintain a safe, supportive, and inclusive campus community that engages students in order to foster their academic success, personal growth and responsible citizenship.

Behavior governed by the UCLA Student Conduct Code includes academic honesty, treatment of others, health and safety, use of resources, and use of alcohol and controlled substances. UCLA’s reputation for academic excellence and institutional integrity is among the most valued assets; as such, academic integrity is of paramount importance and UCLA does all within its power to maintain its standards.

During the summer, matriculated UCLA students and visiting students alike are members of our diverse and inclusive True Bruin community, and you are subject to the same code of conduct policies as UCLA students. Please note, however, different conduct procedures apply to Summer Sessions students given the duration of their student status.

Campus Safety

UCLA strives to offer an environment where individuals of all ages can live, learn, and work safely. The UCLA Police Department's priority is the safety of the UCLA community. UCPD offers a variety of crime-prevention and education services, as well as evening escort (310-794-WALK) and van services (310-825-9800) that operate throughout campus and local living areas. Participants in UCLA Summer Sessions, both UCLA and visiting students alike, can report safety concerns or any suspicious activities/behavior directly to UCPD at 310-825-1491 at any time. For emergencies, always call 911.

A list of safety tips while on campus is available here.

No Smoking Policy

UCLA is a smoke-free campus!

Creating a safe environment for students, faculty and staff is our priority at UCLA.

Tobacco use is prohibited everywhere on campus and at properties owned or leased by UCLA. There will be no designated smoking areas. We ask that tobacco users be respectful of our neighbors and not congregate or litter on their property.

All tobacco users who want to quit are encouraged to call the free California Smokers Helpline at 1-800-NO-BUTTS.

Students who wish to quit smoking can obtain free nicotine-replacement therapy kits (NRTs) at the Ashe Center, where counseling and tobacco-cessation support is also available.

Sexual Violence Prevention and Response

UCLA is committed to creating and maintaining a community where all individuals who participate in University programs and activities can work and learn together in an atmosphere free of sexual harassment and sexual violence. All UCLA students and employees have a right to be free from sex discrimination, including sexual harassment and sexual violence, under Title IX of the Education amendments of 1972. UCLA does not discriminate on the basis of sex or gender, and sexual harassment and sexual violence are prohibited under law and University policy.

For information on how to report incidents of sexual violence or sexual harassment and where to access confidential resources for those who have experienced such harassment or violence or have been accused of sexual violence or sexual harassment, pleave view UCLA's policy on Sexual Violence Prevention and Response.
