WHO IS A US HIGH SCHOOL STUDENT?

During the summer, UCLA opens its door to high school students as well, and we invite you to come and study in a welcoming environment that appreciates diversity and global perspectives.

UCLA Summer Sessions offers high school students two ways to engage in a college experience that will challenge and inspire them: enroll in individual UCLA academic courses or precollege Summer Institutes.

Students must be at least 15 years of age by September 1, 2014 to enroll in academic courses. High school students who are 14 years of age or older by September 1 may participate in our Precollege Summer Institutes.

High school students enrolled in academic courses or the following institutes may apply for housing through UCLA Housing Services: ACTING AND PERFORMANCE SUMMER INSTITUTE, COMMUNICATION SKILLS SUMMER INSTITUTE FOR INTERNATIONAL STUDENTS, or STEM CELL SCIENCE SUMMER INSTITUTE.

p>Please note that UCLA Housing Services requires students to be 16 or older by June 1, 2014 to be eligible and does not provide supervision.

ACADEMIC COURSES

For information on enrollment and registration, fees and payment, as well as relevant University and Summer Sessions policies, applicable to U.S. HIGH SCHOOL STUDENTS, please go to ACADEMIC COURSES: US HIGH SCHOOL STUDENTS. Transcripts, proof of enrollment at another institution, or a GPA minimum is not required.

Summer Sessions is a unique opportunity to advance your academic career while still in high school. You get the chance to study and socialize among America's finest group of undergraduates. 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 100 courses to choose from, including online courses, you can have an unforgettable summer no matter where you are.

Session A begins on June 23 and Session C starts August 4. While the majority of courses are 6-week long, a small number of courses in Session A last for 8-10 weeks. If you are interested in a course that is offered during Session A, please be sure to check the Schedule of Classes to verify the course length. All Session C courses are 6-week long.

UCLA academic courses delivered online carry the same unit value and UCLA degree credit, and transcripts do not indicate if a class was taken online or on campus.
