Enrollment After the Deadline
The deadline to enroll is Friday of Week 1 of the course.
Students may enroll after the deadline if they have consent or permission from the course instructor. You may enroll after the deadline 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 submitted to 1331 Murphy Hall or emailed to email@example.com.
Note: A late fee of $50 will be assessed for each course added after Friday of second week. No late fees are assessed if a student is re-adding a class that was previously dropped or switching sections of the same class.
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 PM, Friday of 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 by:
- Enrolling through MyUCLA using a Permission to Enroll (PTE) number*, which can be obtained from the instructor or the course home department;
- 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.
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 make 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 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 (firstname.lastname@example.org).
