Who is an International Student?
When applying to UCLA Summer Sessions, you will be considered an international student if you answer NO to ALL of the questions below:
- Are you a U.S. citizen or permanent resident, i.e., a Green Card holder?
- Are you an international student currently studying in the US and returning to the same school after the summer?
If you currently hold an F-1 visa and I-20 at another U.S. school AND plan to continue your studies at that school, you won't need to obtain an additional F-1 visa to attend UCLA Summer Sessions. There are no unit requirements and you won't be required to complete the I-20 request form or upload any documents.
- Do you intend to enroll only in online courses ?
If you answered yes to any of the questions, please go to the U.S. Student page.
