ENROLLMENT AFTER THE DEADLINE The deadline to enroll in courses on MyUCLA without consent or permission from the instructor is Friday of Week 1 of the course.
Students may enroll after Friday of Week 1 of the course if they have consent or permission from the instructor. You may enroll one of two ways:

WAITLISTS If the course you wish to take reaches capacity, you may add yourself to the waitlist, if available.
In the event that you are not automatically enrolled in a course from the waitlist by 5:00 PM, Friday of Week 1 of the course's 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 and will not be subject to the processing fee.
Students can resolve their waitlist status prior to the end of Week 1 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.
*Permission to Enroll (PTE) numbers are limited and are only given at the instructor's discretion.
IMPORTANT: Before dropping or attempting to drop any summer course, please read and understand the following summer policies:

Please refer to FEES AND PAYMENT in the left menu bar for Summer Sessions refund policies before dropping any course.
- A course may NOT be dropped or removed from your record if you make any attempt to take the final examination.
- The drop procedure is dependent on whether or not the course is impacted. You can verify if a course is impacted at the UCLA Registrar’s website.
