Summer SessionS 2021

Protecting the health and safety of our campus community has been and will remain UCLA's priority. As such, UCLA Summer Sessions will be offered remotely in 2021 with the exception of a limited number of in-person or hybrid courses necessary to train students for essential workforce positions. We hope that this decision will help you plan for summer in advance. 

UCLA will continue to monitor changes to county public health directives that may allow greater flexibility in bringing students, staff, and faculty back to campus. You can visit UCLA’s COVID-19 resources site for the latest information on UCLA’s response to the pandemic.

We are committed to providing UCLA academic opportunities and experiences through our open enrollment, and intensive efforts are underway to ensure academic continuity and student success. Over 800 courses and programs will continue to be available to UCLA students, as well as visiting other UC or non-UC students for virtual participation.
