Fee Calculator

You may use the fee calculator below to estimate the cost of your attendance. For Summer Courses, Summer Online, or Summer Intensives, search for the courses you’d like to take either via our course/program search tool or the UCLA Schedule of Classes and use the unit information of each course to estimate your total units.

Please note that the fee calculator is intended solely to help you plan your summer and only provides an estimate of your course or program fees, excluding other costs you may have such as housing cost, living expenses, textbooks, Course Materials fees, or miscellaneous fees that may apply.

The Finances tutorial has an overview of fees, payment, deadlines, and more.

PLEASE NOTE: UCLA students who have been dismissed, withdrawn, or graduated prior to the summer term will be assessed visiting student fees.

  • Fees are calculated based on student type and units; there are NO additional out-of-state domestic student fees during the summer (international students may incur additional fees i.e. health insurance).
  • UCLA students who have been dismissed, withdrawn, or graduated prior to the summer term will be assessed visiting student fees (including the $350 registration fee described below).
