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.


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. We strongly recommend that you verify course/space availablity on the Schedule of Classes one more time before proceeding to payment as a refund of the deposit will not be issued even if the course(s) you wish to take is full with no wait list.

Once enrolled, the nonrefundable deposit will apply toward your summer balance. In the event of withdrawal or all enrollment cancellations 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.

If you are not ready to make any payment, you can first submit this online registration form and later retrieve the form to pay the deposit.


Some UCLA courses may have requisites. If you have had experience comparable to the listed requisite, you may enroll. Transcripts or proof of completion of a requisite course is not required for visiting Summer Sessions students.

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, 2016. 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.

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 an optional or mandatory supervised residential plan.
