COURSE DESCRIPTIONS

Course descriptions are available here, or you can also view the description of a specific course you have selected on the Schedule of Classes.

  2. When viewing the desired course, select the "Section" number to access additional information about the course

Each UCLA course is numbered from 1-599, e.g., English 101. Below is a description of the UCLA course numbering system.

The majority of courses are lower-division, numbered between 1 and 99, and do not have any pre-requisites. Certain upper-division courses (100 - 199) are also approved for high school students and are listed below.

  • 1-99: Lower division courses designed for undergraduate freshmen and sophomores. The majority of courses approved for high school student enrollment fall into this category.
  • 100-199: Upper division courses designed for undergraduate juniors and seniors. With the exception of a few courses listed here, high school students are not permitted to enroll in upper division courses.
  • 200-599: Graduate-leveled courses - High school students are not permitted to enroll in these courses under any circumstances. 

 

REQUISITES
Some courses may require you to have taken specific courses or fulfilled certain requirements. If you have had experience comparable to the listed requisite and the course is listed on the high school approved course enrollment list, you may enroll.

Please read the description of the courses you intend to take before enrolling to decide if they are right for you.

ENROLLMENT AFTER THE DEADLINE
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 submitted to 1331 Murphy Hall or emailed to info@summer.ucla.edu.
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 during Summer Sessions or switching sections of the same class.


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 in a course from the waitlist by 5:00 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.

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 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 at 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 or via email (info@summer.ucla.edu), certifying that the coursework was not completed.

 

DROPPING IMPACTED COURSES
All courses indicated on the Impacted Course List is considered impacted and subject to the drop procedures below:

  • Before 5:00 PM, Friday of Week 1 of the course: Sign-in to MyUCLA, select "Classes", then "Drop a Class" and proceed with course cancellation.
  • After 5:00 PM, Friday of Week 1 of the course: Dropping an impacted course is by approval only in accordance with the Impacted Course Drop Policy. As requests are rarely granted only under extenuating circumstances, students who wish to drop an impacted course past the Week 1 deadline should consult the course instructor and explore academic options other than dropping the course. Non-UCLA students will be required to complete a Student Updated Form with the instructor's signature provided on the form and submit the request to the Summer Sessions Office, 1331 Murphy Hall, in order to petition for a drop of any impacted courses. If approved, the course appears on the transcript with a notation indicating the date and week the drop was officially processed.
