UCLA Summer Sessions is committed to working with the campus community to build and deliver a strong base of in-demand core course offerings, as well as innovative programs and learning opportunities for summer visiting students and matriculated UCLA students alike.

We thank you for your interest in UCLA Summer Sessions and hope that you will decide to join us for an academically, socially, and culturally enriching experience.

Please review the information below before proceeding to register. When ready to register, select “Yes, Continue to Registration” at the bottom of this webpage.


With the exception of currently matriculated UCLA students, a nonrefundable deposit is required of all summer students to complete registration ($400 for international students; $150 for all others).

Please be sure of your intention to register, as this deposit is NOT refundable at any point, under ANY circumstances. A refund of the deposit will not be issued even if the course(s) you wish to take is full with or without a wait list. We strongly recommend that you verify course/space availability on the Schedule of Classes one more time before proceeding to pay the nonrefundable deposit.

Once enrolled, the nonrefundable deposit will apply toward your summer balance. In the event of withdrawal or enrollment cancellation of all courses prior to the applicable refund deadline, the nonrefundable deposit will appear as the processing fee on your BruinBill account.

Payment of the nonrefundable deposit can be made by credit card or electronic check using the secure CASHNet SmartPay system. Credit card transactions made through CASHNet SmartPay are subject to a nonrefundable 2.75% service fee. Electronic check payments are not subject to a service fee.

If you are not ready to make payment of the deposit at the time of registration submission, you may later retrieve the registration form to pay the deposit. Once a valid payment is made, your registration is complete, and you will be able to proceed to the next course enrollment steps.


Please read the description of the courses you intend to take and decide if the course is right for you before enrolling.
For UCLA courses may have requisites, visiting, non-UCLA students are not required to provide transcripts or proof of completion of the requisite course(s). You may enroll as long as you have had experience comparable to the requisite course(s) listed in the course description.


Please note that some UCLA courses may be restricted to a specific population only such as UCLA students. Courses restricted to "UCLA students only" include (but are not limited to) CHEM 14BL, CHEM 14C, CHEM 14CL, ENG COMP 3, and most graduate-leveled courses (courses numbered 200 and above). To view whether your desired course has restrictions, visit the Schedule of Classes, search for the course, then click on the section.


Summer fees for academic courses vary by the total number of units you enroll in and your student status among other factors.
All Summer Sessions participants must review the applicable academic course page organized by student types for information on various policies and procedures including fees and payment. However, you can refer to the fees page for a quick estimate of your summer fees and the calendar page for a summary of payment deadlines. Please note that delinquency in payment may result in enrollment cancellations, holds on academic records, and/or collection actions.


In the event of enrollment cancellations prior to refund deadlines, applicable fees from the following categories are subject to refund. Please note that the nonrefundable deposit will be deducted from the total refund amount.

  • Unit Fees
  • Various University fees that are assessed to current matriculated UCLA students if all enrollments are dropped
  • Registration fees that are assessed to visiting non-UCLA students if all enrollments are dropped
  • Document Fee if all enrollments are dropped
  • Instructional Enhancement Initiative Fee if all enrollments are dropped
  • Materials Use Fee
  • Health insurance applicable to international students for Summer Sessions registration purposes only if all enrollments are dropped

No fees are refundable after the refund deadlines, and students will be financially liable regardless of enrollment status. Go to our calendar for a quick overview of refund deadlines or visit the applicable academic course page based on your student category (see under FEES AND PAYMENT).

Summer fees, charges, and offerings are subject to change, without prior notice. Reasonable endeavor will be made to notify students of such changes and suggest alternatives when applicable. In the event of cancellation, the University is not responsible for any consequential loss or expenses incurred as a result.


In order to enroll in academic courses offered through UCLA Summer Sessions, students must be 15 years of age or older as of September 1, 2017.

Students who are at least 16 years of age and enrolled in academic courses may apply to live in the UCLA residence halls through UCLA Housing Services. UCLA Housing Services does not offer any organized supervision. If you wish to participate in a UCLA summer program that offers supervised residential experience, please consider registering for a Precollege Summer Institute program. The majority of Precollege Summer Institutes offer a mandatory supervised residential plan.

Please note that although UCLA Summer Sessions does not provide organized supervision for minors enrolled in academic courses, UCLA strives to offer an environment where individuals of all ages can live, learn, and work safely. The UCLA Police Department's priority is the safety of the UCLA community. UCPD offers a variety of crime-prevention and education services, as well as evening escort (310-794-WALK) and van services (310-825-9800) that operate throughout campus and local living areas. Participants in UCLA Summer Sessions, UCLA and visiting students alike, can report safety concerns or any suspicious activities/behavior directly to UCPD at 310-825-1491 at any time.
