Academic Courses: UCLA Students




The fee for a summer course is calculated based on the unit value the course carries. In addition to the course fee, students are assessed other campus and administrative fees during the summer. Below is a summary of fees that apply to UCLA students.

Note: All fees are subject to change without prior notice.


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. Note: "Hybrid" courses that have components offered both online and on UCLA campus are not considered online courses for summer registration purposes.

The following is only an example and is intended to help you understand how fees are calculated. Summer fee assessment varies depending on several factors

If a continuing undergraduate UCLA student enrolls in two courses that carry 4 and 5 units respectively, the total summer balance is estimated at $2,709.32 regardless of whether the two courses are taken in one or two sessions:

Summer Fee Calculation Example

Referenda Fees $119.32
4-unit course unit fees $281 x 4 = $1,124
5-unit course unit fees $281 x 5 = $1,405
IEI fees $61


Instructional Enhancement Initiative (IEI) Fee: IEI Fee is assessed to all students without a bachelor's degree and cannot be waived. Individuals with a Bachelor’s Degree will not be assessed this fee. For more information, visit the IEI webpage.

Material Use Fees: A small number of courses carry additional Materials Use Fees. The Material Use Fee will be assessed to all students enrolled in any of the courses listed on the Course Materials Fees webpage.

Document Fee: Incoming first-year and transfer students will be assessed a $50 Document Fee if Summer 2018 is your first term at UCLA.

Payment Delinquency

Failure to meet the payment deadlines as stipulated on the Summer Sessions website may result in one or more of the following consequences:

  • Enrollment cancellations following the June 22 and August 3 payment deadlines
  • Placement of a hold or holds on student records
  • Delinquent fee assessment
  • Collections activity

It is the responsibility of students to review their BruinBill accounts, to comply with the payment deadlines (see PAYMENT DEADLINE), to make enrollment decisions and transactions such as dropping courses, and to accept the consequences for those decisions. You must drop the courses that you do not wish to take by the applicable refund deadline. If you are enrolled in any courses at any time after the applicable refund deadline, you will be financially held liable for those courses regardless of subsequent enrollment decisions and transactions.

The first drop after the June 22 payment deadline may affect students who are enrolled in Session A and/or Session C academic courses but have not made full payment of all fees related to their enrollments as stipulated on the Summer Sessions website. For those students included in this drop, all enrolled summer session courses will be dropped regardless of sessions or balance amount.

The second drop after the August 3 payment may affect students who are enrolled in Session C courses, including those who are enrolled in Session C courses only and those who are enrolled in both Session A and Session C courses, but have not made full payment of all fees related to their enrollments as stipulated on the Summer Sessions website. For those students included in this drop, all Session C enrollments will be canceled regardless of the remaining balance.


  Impacted Courses Non-Impacted Courses
Session A 5PM, June 29 5PM, July 6
Session C 5PM, August 10 5PM, August 17

UCLA students are not required to pay a deposit prior to summer enrollment. However, a processing fee of $150 will be assessed if all summer courses are dropped at any point in time, regardless of whether instruction has begun. This processing fee is not refundable under any circumstances.

Excluding the processing fee, in the event you drop a course, the following fees, if applicable, are refundable only if the course is dropped before the course's refund deadline (specified above):

  • Course fee
  • Instructional Enhancement Initiative (IE) fee
  • Material use fee(s)
  • Campus- based fees (if all courses dropped)
  • Document fee (if all courses dropped)

These fees are 100% NON-refundable if dropped after the refund deadline, and students will be financially liable for any courses you are enrolled in past the refund deadline.

If entitled to a refund from the UCLA Summer Sessions Office, you will receive your refund one of three ways:
  • BruinDirect: BruinDirect is a convenient, free, and automatic way for students to receive refunds directly to their U.S. checking or savings account. You may sign-up on BruinBill.
  • Credit Card: Payments made with a credit card will be returned back to the credit card that made the original payment.
  • Check Refund: If payment made using a method other than credit card and if not signed-up for BruinDirect, refund will be issued as a paper check and mailed to the mailing address on file.

Refunds may take up to two weeks.

No refunds are issued after the above deadlines. It is the responsibility of each student to know and to comply with Summer Sessions policy and deadlines. Students cannot use ignorance of the Summer Sessions refund policy and deadlines for justification for seeking a refund.

Only those who encounter unforeseen, extenuating circumstances may request an exception to the refund policy. Reasons such as the following will NOT be considered for an exception to the refund policy:

  • Lack of knowledge of Summer Sessions Policy and regulations
  • Reliance on enrollment cancellation due to non-payment
  • Insufficient, delayed, and/or cancellation of financial aid award
  • Conditions or chronic illnesses that remain static and are known to the student at the time of registration/enrollment
  • Dissatisfaction with course(s) and/or grade received

To file a refund petition, please contact UCLA Summer Sessions at (310) 825-4101 or Refund petitions should be filed within one week from the official drop date, or Friday of the last week of the class, whichever comes first. Refund petitions submitted after the deadline will be accepted at the discretion of the UCLA Summer Sessions Office. No refund petitions will be accepted for retroactively dropped courses after October 31 of the calendar year during which the course was taken.

Summer offerings are subject to change, without prior notice, by action of the academic department offering the course/program. Changes include, but are not limited to the following:

  • Meeting time and location changes
  • Instructor substitutions
  • Course cancellation

Reasonable endeavor will be made to notify students of such changes and suggest alternatives when applicable.

In the event of cancellation, the University is not responsible for any consequential loss or expenses incurred as a result; only the course fee, as well as campus, registration, material and/or IEI fees if applicable will be subject to refund.


Financial aid is available to qualified UCLA students. This includes newly admitted UCLA students beginning in the fall 2018. For more information about financial aid for UCLA Summer Sessions courses, please visit the Financial Aid and Scholarships Office website.
