Enrollment for UCLA Students

Current matriculated UCLA students can enroll in summer academic courses beginning February 1 on MyUCLA.

Summer fee assessment and policies vary by student types. To qualify as a current matriculated UCLA student for summer registration purposes, you must meet at least one of the requirements below:

  • Admitted student with an active winter and/or spring term and a degree expected term after the end of the summer term.
  • Incoming freshman or transfer student who has SIR'd to the university.
  • Admitted student returning from a leave of absence (excluding students on probation or subject to dismissal) with a degree expected term after the end of the summer term.

If you do not meet any of these requirements and want to participate in Summer Sessions as a visiting US student, please click here for more information.

Summer is a great opportunity to fulfill GE or Writing II requirements, enroll in that much needed impacted course, or complete your graduation requirements sooner. With over 1000 courses to choose from, including ONLINE COURSES , you can have a successful and productive summer wherever you are headed.

UCLA academic courses delivered online carry the same unit value and UCLA degree credit, and transcripts do not indicate if a class was taken online or on campus. If you enroll in online courses only, the campus fee will be waived. Hybrid courses that have both online and offline components are not considered online courses for Summer Sessions registration purposes.

 

Whether you will be moving back home during the summer or working full time with inflexible hours, online courses provide an alternative solution to your academic needs. To view a full list of online courses offered during the summer, please click here.

Registration for Visiting Students

During the summer, UCLA opens its door to students from around the country and the world, and we invite you to come and study in a welcoming environment that appreciates diversity and global perspectives.

Participants must be at least 15 years of age prior to the first day of summer. Transcripts, proof of enrollment at another institution, or a GPA minimum is not required.

International students who will require an F-1 visa to participate in UCLA Summer Sessions must enroll in at least 8 units per session.

Living outside the U.S. or being a citizen of a different country doesn't automatically classify a student as international. If you answer no to ALL of the questions below, you are an international student for summer registration purposes and will require an F-1 visa to participate:

  • Are you a U.S. citizen or permanent resident, i.e., a Green Card holder?
  • Are you an international student currently studying in the US and returning to the same school after the summer?
  • Do you intend to enroll only in academic courses that are offered completely online?
  • Do you wish to enroll only in the Summer Institute programs that are not F-1 eligible, indicated with * here?

If you are an international student for our registration purposes, you will be asked to submit an I-20 request for an F-1 visa. International students may enroll in a minimum of 8 units and a maximum of 20 units per session. Most courses are valued at 4 or 5 units each. We recommend taking 8 to 12 units due to the intensive course format. For more information on enrollment and registration, fees and payment, relevant UCLA policies, as well as visas, please go to Academic Courses for International Students or Academic Courses for International High School Students.
