Some summer courses have requisite requirements. Please read the course description before enrolling to ensure that you have fulfilled the requisite(s).
Requisites are enforced during the summer for UCLA students and MyUCLA will automatically check to see if you have met any mandatory requirements. Students completing the requisite courses in winter or spring quarter may visit the course's department and request a Permission to Enroll (PTE) number.
College of Letters and Science students and graduate students may take a maximum of 18 units per summer. All other UCLA students may take a maximum of 16 units.
If you wish to exceed your study load limit, you must obtain approval from your respective school or college.
The deadline to enroll in courses on MyUCLA without consent or permission from the instructor is Friday of Week 1 of the course. Students may enroll after Friday of Week 1 of the course if they have consent or permission from the instructor. You may enroll one of two ways:
- Enroll on MyUCLA using a Permission to Enroll (PTE)* number (Prior to the end of Week 2 ONLY); OR
- Submit a Student Update Form (PDF) with either an authorized signature from the instructor or a PTE* number provided on the form. The form may be emailed to firstname.lastname@example.org.
NOTE: A late fee of $50 will be assessed for each course added after Friday of second week of each session. No late fees are assessed if a student is re-adding a class that was dropped, switching sections of the same class, or adding any 99, 195-199, 596-599 courses.
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 in a course from the waitlist by 5:00 PM, Friday Week 1 of the course's session, you will be dropped from the waitlist and receive a refund of the course fees. 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 by:
- 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 at 1331 Murphy Hall; or
- Exchanging the waitlisted course for another course prior to the end of the first week of class.
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.
