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

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 visiting summer students and matriculated UCLA students alike.

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


A nonrefundable deposit is required of all visiting summer-only students ($400 for international students; $150 for all others).Registration is considered incomplete until payment is received.

The 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 want 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 be applied toward your summer balance. If you withdrawal from or cancel enrollment of all courses, the nonrefundable deposit will appear as a 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 pay the deposit at the time of registration submission, you may retrieve the registration form later to pay the deposit. Once a valid payment is made, your registration is complete, and you will be able to proceed to the next enrollment steps.


Please read the description of the courses you intend to take and decide if the course is right for you before enrolling.


Some UCLA summer courses have requisites. Visiting non-UCLA students are not required to provide transcripts or proof of completion of the requisite course(s) or equivalent. You may enroll as long as you have had experience comparable to the requisite course(s) listed in the course description.


Some UCLA courses may be restricted to specific populations only (e.g., UCLA students only). Courses restricted to "UCLA students only" include (but are not limited to) CHEM 14BL, CHEM 14C, CHEM 14CL, ENG COMP 3, and most graduate-level 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 are assessed based on the unit value of the course(s) and your student status, among other factors.

All Summer Sessions participants must review the academic course page organized by student types for information on various policies and procedures including fees and payment. Additionally, 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. Note: Delinquency in payment may result in enrollment cancellations, holds on academic records, and/or collection actions.


In the event of enrollment cancellation prior to refund deadline, fees from the following categories are subject to refund. Note: The nonrefundable deposit will be deducted from the total refunded amount.

  • Course Fee(s)
  • Registration/campus-based fees, if all enrollments are dropped
  • Document Fee, if all enrollments are dropped
  • Instructional Enhancement Initiative (IEI) 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 page 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 attempts 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.
