How to Register and Enroll
UCLA students can start enrolling in online courses on February 1 via MyUCLA as any other summer academic courses. Deposits are 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.
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 $150 nonrefundable deposit , 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 deposit 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 make the deposit.
This deposit 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.
You will use your UCLA ID number to obtain a UCLA logon via MyUCLA. If you already have a UCLA logon, you do not need to create a new logon. Simply log in to your pre-existing account. Be sure to update your address, e-mail, and phone number if necessary.

STARTING THE SECOND WEEK: You can enroll either on MyUCLA using a PTE number OR with a Student Update Form with an authorized signature from the instructor for each class being added. Submit the form to 1331 Murphy Hall.
If the course you wish to take reaches capacity, you may add yourself to the waitlist if there is one.
In the event that you are not automatically enrolled in a course from the waitlist by 5:00 PM on the first Friday of the session , you will be dropped from the waitlist and the course fees refunded. If it is the only course you are enrolled in, you will receive a full refund.
Students can resolve their waitlist status prior to the end of the first week by:
- Enrolling through MyUCLA using a Permission to Enroll (PTE) number, which can be obtained from the instructor or the course home department;
- Presenting a Student Update Form with a PTE number to the Summer Sessions office, 1331 Murphy Hall; or
- Exchanging the waitlisted course for another course prior to the end of the first week of the session.
Students may verify their enrollment status in a particular course by viewing their Studylist using MyUCLA.
