4 OUT OF 5 UCLA students will become a Summer Bruin at some point during their undergraduate career.

There are many reasons why UCLA students become Summer Bruins:

  • Fulfill degree requirements to graduate on time or early
  • Create flexibility to double major, take up a minor, and/or study abroad
  • Have a lighter schedule to tackle and focus on courses that may be more difficult
  • Enroll in an impacted course that is very hard to get a space in during the academic year
  • Take a course of interest outside your major
  • Complete the entire Foreign Language Requirement with a language intensive course
  • Save money (Nonresident Supplemental Tuition is not assessed during the summer for out-of-state students)
  • And many more…

Incoming first year and transfer students can start as early as the summer prior to their first quarter.

It is important that you understand how specific courses will apply towards your intended degree. Please be sure to consult with your academic advisor before enrolling.


Please visit our ACADEMIC COURSES: UCLA STUDENTS page for information on the following:

  • Enrollment and registration
  • Fees and payment

Summer is a great opportunity to fulfill GE or Writing II requirements, enroll in that much needed impacted course, or complete your graduation requirements sooner.

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 1000 courses to choose from, including ONLINE COURSES, you can have a successful and productive summer no matter where you are headed.

UCLA ONLINE COURSES offer you the opportunity to earn credit anytime, anywhere. UCLA academic courses delivered online  carry the same unit value and UCLA degree credit, and transcripts do not indicate if a class was taken online or on campus.

Whether you will be moving back home during the summer or working full time with inflexible hours, online courses provide an alternative solution to your academic needs.
