College-level courses (courses which are generally 6-weeks or longer in length) are offered through UCLA Summer Sessions. Summer courses are taught by regular UCLA faculty and distinguished visiting faculty who bring special expertise and different academic perspectives to the campus. In the summer, our diverse student body consists of continuing UCLA students and visiting students from high schools, colleges, and universities all over the world. High school students who take our college-level courses are in the same courses as regular UCLA students.
Orientation: All high school students enrolled in the College-Level Program are welcome to attend the Summer High School Programs Orientation. Orientation will be on Saturday, June 22 in Haines 39. Time is TBA
Housing: If you are 16 years of age or older and taking regular UCLA college courses, you may purchase a housing contract through UCLA Housing after you have enrolled in your courses. You will be housed in a living learning environment with other high school students in college-level courses as well as with university aged students. However, please be advised that this is not a supervised program and you will be treated as a university student.
Grading Policy: High school students participating in UCLA courses for academic credit will be held to the same academic standards as matriculated University of California students. Students’ grades will appear on an official University of California transcript which becomes a permanent part of their college record.
UCLA Transcript: The college-level coursework completed at UCLA Summer Sessions will yield an official UCLA transcript and become a permanent part of your college record. You must check with your high school counselor if classes taken at UCLA during the summer can be a part of your high school transcript. To order a transcript, please visit the Registrar's Web site for instructions.
Eligibility: The UCLA Summer Sessions College-Level Program is appropriate for academically motivated high school students, enrolled in grades 10-12 in Fall 2013 and age 15 or older, who wish to get a head start on their college careers. Students should have a GPA of 3.0 or better and demonstrate an ability to do college-level work. UCLA Summer Sessions does not require a high school transcript or letter of recommendation. Please note that the enrollment requirements for the UCLA Summer Institutes for high school students may be different from those of the Summer College-Level Program. Please check the overview page of those programs for more information.
