Academic Courses: US Highschool Students




Due to UCLA's announcement that all summer 2020 offerings will be conducted remotely, housing will be unavailable to visiting students this summer.


Supervision and Campus Safety

In order to enroll in academic courses offered through UCLA Summer Sessions, students must be 15 years of age or older as of the first day of summer (i.e., June 22, 2020).

Students who are at least 15 years of age and enrolled in academic courses may apply to live in the UCLA residence halls through UCLA Housing Services.


UCLA Summer Sessions does not offer summer camps for high school students. Rather, UCLA’s summer offerings that are open to high school students are intended for highly motivated, mature high school students, who are capable of making their own decisions and accepting the consequences for those decisions. High school students enrolled in academic courses are expected to manage themselves with the same level of independence and self-sufficiency as matriculated UCLA students. UCLA does not provide supervision, organize special activities, or monitor whereabouts of high school students enrolled in academic courses.

Although UCLA Summer Sessions does not provide organized supervision for minors enrolled in academic courses, UCLA strives to offer an environment where individuals of all ages can live, learn, and work safely.


UCLA strives to offer an environment where individuals of all ages can live, learn, and work safely. The UCLA Police Department's priority is the safety of the UCLA community. UCPD offers a variety of crime-prevention and education services, as well as evening escort (310-794-WALK) that operates throughout campus and local living areas. Participants in UCLA Summer Sessions, both UCLA and visiting students alike, can report safety concerns or any suspicious activities/behavior directly to UCPD at 310-825-1491 at any time. For emergencies, always call 911.

A list of safety tips while on campus is available here.

UCLA has developed the Bruins Safe Online website and the Bruins Safe Mobile App to provide access to campus safety resources and up-to-date information during an incident. Bruins Safe is available for download from the UCLA App Store. Bruin Safe benefits include:

  • Safety notifications: Receive instant notifications and instructions from campus safety when on-campus emergencies occur.
  • Emergency help: contact campus safety staff quickly for help in an emergency.
  • Campus safety resources: access all important safety resources in one convenient app.


The BruinCard is your passport to life at UCLA. It is the primary student identification, library, and gym card. The BruinCard also serves other purposes both on and off campus and the convenience of all the included features makes it a must-have necessity.

Starting June 1, you can pick up your BruinCard at the BruinCard Center in 123 Kerckhoff Hall. The BruinCard Center is open weekdays from 9:00 AM to 4:00 PM. For more information, visit


Summer Sessions parking permits will be available beginning June on a first-come, first-served basis.

Students have the option to purchase a summer term permit. A term permit for summer is generally more cost effective and convenient than paying for parking on a daily basis.

Daily permits are also sold on a space-available basis at any of the Parking and Information booths located throughout the UCLA campus. Motorcycles, mopeds and motor scooters do not require parking permits, but may park only in designated areas.

Please review the Transportation and Parking Services webpage for additional information on parking options.

Medical Responsibility and Insurance

UCLA provides insurance to eligible matriculated UCLA students only. Therefore, it is your sole responsibility to maintain sufficient health, accident, disability, and hospitalization insurance while traveling to and from UCLA, and through your participation in UCLA Summer Sessions.

Regardless of your insurance status, you may be able to access services at the UCLA Arthur Ashe Student Health & Wellness Center at fee-for-service rates as long as you are enrolled and have made a full payment of your summer fees.


UCLA is committed to creating and maintaining a community where all individuals who participate in University programs and activities can work and learn together in an atmosphere free of sexual harassment and sexual violence. UCLA does not discriminate on the basis of sex or gender, and sexual harassment and sexual violence are prohibited under law and University policy.

Please review the information below regarding how to report incidents of sexual violence or sexual harassment and where to access confidential resources for those who have experienced such harassment or violence or have been accused of sexual violence or sexual harassment.

Reporting Options

CARE Advocates may also be able to facilitate housing needs, academic adjustments and other accommodations.

Resources for Accused Individuals
