NOTE: A late fee of $50 will be assessed for each course added after Friday of Week 2 of each session. No late fees are assessed if a student is re-adding a class that was previously dropped, switching discussion sections of the same class, or adding a contract course (i.e., 99, 195-199, 596-599 course).


Waitlists

If the course you wish to take reaches capacity, you may add yourself to the waitlist, if available.

In the event that you are not automatically enrolled from the waitlist by 5 PM, Friday Week 1 of the course's session , you will be dropped from the waitlist and the course fees refunded. If it is the only course you are enrolled in, you will receive a full refund and will not be subject to the processing fee.

Students can resolve their waitlist status prior to the end of Week 1:

  • Enrolling on MyUCLA using a Permission to Enroll (PTE) number*, which can be obtained from the instructor or the course home department. For a tutorial on enrollment, please click here;
  • Presenting a Student Update Form with a PTE number to the Summer Sessions office, 1331 Murphy Hall; or
  • Exchanging the waitlisted course for another course prior to the end of the first week of the session.

Students may verify their enrollment status in a particular course by viewing their Studylist using MyUCLA.

*Permission to Enroll (PTE) numbers are limited and are only given at the instructor's discretion.

Academic courses are offered during two sessions, Session A and Session C.

While the majority of courses are 6-weeks 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-weeks long.

DROPPING COURSES

Important: Before dropping or attempting to drop any summer course, please read and understand the following summer policies.

  • The refund deadline and the drop deadline is not the same for most summer courses. Therefore, it is possible to drop a course and still be held liable for the full cost of the class. Please refer to FEES AND PAYMENT in the left menu bar for Summer Sessions refund policies before dropping any course.
  • A course may NOT be dropped or removed from your record if you may any attempt to take the final examination.
  • The drop procedure is dependent on whether or not the course is impacted. You can verify if a course is impacted on the UCLA Registrar's website.

Dropping Non-Impacted Courses

Any course not indicated on the Impacted Course List is considered non-impacted and subject to the drop procedures below:

  • Before the final two weeks of the course: Sign-in to MyUCLA, select "Classes," then "Drop a Class" and proceed with the course cancellation.
  • Final two weeks of the course: Submit a Student Update Form with the instructor's signature provided on the form to 1331 Murphy Hall during regular business hours or via email (info@summer.ucla.edu).

New Fall admits are required to submit a Student Update Form (PDF) signed by your course instructor to the UCLA Summer Sessions Office, 1331 Murphy Hall.
