ACADEMIC COURSES:

UC STUDENTS

Fees

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 registration and administrative fees during the summer. Below is a summary of fees that apply to UC students.

Note: The non-refundable deposit of $150 required for registration will apply toward your summer tuition balance within 24 hours of enrolling.

All fees are subject to change without prior notice.

Registration is not complete until the deposit is paid in full. Those who are not prepared to pay can submit their registration form and retrieve registration at another time to make the deposit.

 

This deposit is not refundable under any circumstances even if you drop all courses before they begin. If you withdraw, this deposit will appear as processing fee charge on your BruinBill account.


SUMMARY OF FEES

Registration Fee $150.00 (not applicable if enrolled in online courses only)
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. Please note that "hybrid" courses that have components offered both online and on UCLA campus are not considered online courses for summer registration purposes.

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

If an undergraduate UC student enrolls in two courses that carry 4 and 5 units respectively, the total summer balance is estimated at $2,790.00 regardless of whether the two courses are in one or two sessions:

Summer Fee Calculation Example

Campus fee $150.00
4-unit course unit fees $281.00 x 4 = $1,124.00
5-unit course unit fees $281.00 x 5 = $1,405.00
IEI fees $61.00
Document Fee $50.00
ESTIMATED TOTAL $2,790.00


FEE DESCRIPTIONS

Instructional Enhancement Initiative (IEI) Fee: An Instructional Enhancement Initiative (IEI) Fee is assessed to 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 Fee: 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 Fee webpage.

Document Fee: Document fee covers a lifetime supply of official transcripts mailed by USPS first class mail. Summer-only visiting students will be assessed a one-time document fee during their first summer term; returning summer-only students will not be subject to the document fee.

Payment Delinquency

Delinquency in payment for summer related fees may result in enrollment cancellations and/or holds on student records. Please be sure to verify your account balance and pay any remaining Summer Sessions balance on MyUCLA by the appropriate payment deadline.

Please note, the majority of students who fail to make payment of important summer related fees will experience course cancellations due to their delinquency. However, a small number of students may experience holds placed on their record and/or delinquent fees in lieu of course cancellation.

Therefore, if you wish to drop and/or switch courses, it is your responsibility to do so on MyUCLA prior to the refund deadline.

Reliance on system drops due to nonpayment will not be considered for a refund if you remain enrolled in a course past the refund deadline and decide to drop, as not all students will have their courses dropped.
