How to Register and Enroll

UCLA Students

UCLA students can start enrolling in online courses on February 1 via MyUCLA as any other summer academic courses. A registration fee is not required for UCLA students. However, the processing fee of $150 will be assessed if all courses are dropped regardless of whether instruction has begun.

Visiting Students

Whether new or returning to UCLA Summer Sessions, all visiting students including other UC students must fill out our Academic Course Registration first in order to enroll in courses. Registration opens February 15.

Once you have submitted the online registration form and the $350 registration fee , an email will be sent to you with your UCLA ID number. Please note that even if you already have a UCLA ID and logon, you will not have access to MyUCLA summer enrollment options unless your registration is complete.

Registration is not complete until the registration fee is paid in full. Those who are not prepared to pay can submit their registration form and access their existing registration at another time to submit payment.

The registration fee is nonrefundable even if you drop all courses before they begin. For additional information about refund policies, please refer to FEES AND PAYMENT in the left menu bar.

Enrollment in academic courses is done through MyUCLA. You will also use MyUCLA for bill paying, viewing grades, and using other services. Please keep a secure record of your UCLA logon information.
