During the summer, many academic courses that make up UCLA's regular curriculum are offered in two sessions, Session A and Session C . With over 1,000 courses to choose from, you will have an enriching summer here at UCLA.

UCLA Online Courses offer you the opportunity to earn credit anytime, anywhere. UCLA online courses carry the same unit value and UCLA degree credit as on-campus courses, and transcripts do not indicate the course was online.
Whether you will be moving back home during the summer or working full time with inflexible hours, online courses provide an alternative solution to your academic needs.
