During the summer months, visiting UC students have four different summer experiences to select from here at UCLA:

  • Academic Courses
  • Online Courses
  • College/Professional Summer Institutes
  • Summer Intensive Studies

Summer fee assessment and policies vary by student types. To qualify as a current matriculated UC student for summer enrollment purposes, you must meet at least one of the requirements below:

  • Admitted UC student with an active winter and/or spring term and a degree expected term after the end of the summer term.
  • Incoming UC freshman or transfer student who has submitted their Statement of Intent to Register (SIR) to the university.
  • Admitted UC student returning from a leave of absence (excluding students on probation or subject to dismissal) with a degree expected term after the end of the summer term.

Academic Courses

During the summer, many academic courses that make up UCLA's regular curriculum are offered in two sessions, Session A and Session C . With over 1,000 courses to choose from, you can have a successful and productive summer no matter where you are headed.

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.
