During the summer months, visiting UC students have four different summer experiences to select from here at UCLA:

  • Academic Courses
  • Online Courses
  • College/Professional Summer Institutes
  • Summer Intensive Studies

Summer fee assessment and policies vary by student types. To qualify as a current matriculated UC student for summer enrollment purposes, you must meet at least one of the requirements below:

  • Admitted UC student with an active winter and/or spring term and a degree expected term after the end of the summer term.
  • Incoming UC freshman or transfer student who has submitted their Statement of Intent to Register (SIR) to the university.
  • Admitted UC student returning from a leave of absence (excluding students on probation or subject to dismissal) with a degree expected term after the end of the summer term.

If you do not meet any of these requirements and want to participate in Summer Sessions as a visiting U.S. student, please click here.

 

Summer Sessions courses and programs are subject to change, including, but not limited to, program dates, schedules, and mode of delivery, by action of the academic department offering the course/program or by the University. UCLA is currently offering remote instruction through March 2021 with limited in-person activities, monitoring changes to public health directives. In the event that remote instruction is extended to Summer 2021, the details of UCLA’s decision will be made available via UCLA Summer Sessions COVID-19 updates.

Choose from over 600+ courses in 130 majors at UCLA this summer for 3-10 weeks, including GE, Writing II, and major or minor courses.
