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.
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, 2015 to be eligible and does not provide supervision.
- Are you a U.S. citizen or permanent resident, i.e., a Green Card holder?
- Are you an international student currently studying in the US and returning to the same school after the summer?
If you currently hold an F-1 visa and I-20 at another U.S. school AND plan to continue your studies at that school, you won't need to obtain an additional F-1 visa to attend UCLA Summer Sessions. There are no unit requirements and you won't be required to complete the I-20 request form or upload any documents.
- Do you intend to register only in the short-term precollege Summer Institutes that are not F-1 visa eligible , indicated with * in the right column?
Registration only in precollege Summer Institutes that are not F-1 eligible does not satisfy the requirements for an I-20 form to be issued. Please be sure to consult your local US embassy/consulate for visa options prior to registering as an I-20 form may not be issued.
The thousands of high school students who have joined us in the past report that UCLA Summer Sessions is an invigorating and unforgettable experience academically, culturally, and socially, and we hope to see you this summer.
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.
