Plans for Summer Sessions Instruction

January 29, 2021

Dear Bruin Community:

While it is encouraging to see the distribution of COVID-19 vaccines and other advances in the fight against the pandemic, we must recognize that even under the best of circumstances a return to normalcy will take time. I write today to share that UCLA Summer Sessions instruction will take place primarily remotely, with the exception of a limited number of in-person or hybrid courses necessary to train students for essential workforce positions. This decision was made at the recommendation of our COVID-19 Response and Recovery Task Force. I hope that having this information well in advance will help with your summer planning.

Enrollment for Summer Sessions will be available starting Monday, February 1. For details, please visit the UCLA Summer Sessions website, which will be continuously updated as we finalize remote teaching course availability for the summer.

Students in professional schools that operate on a schedule distinct from Summer Sessions will hear more from their deans in the months ahead.

UCLA Housing will continue to operate this summer at reduced levels; additional information is available on UCLA Housing’s COVID-19 information page. International students should visit the Dashew Center’s COVID-19 Updates page for resources related to travel and visa compliance. As always, the latest information about our campus’ response to the pandemic can be found on UCLA’s COVID-19 website.

Thank you, once again, for continuing to follow public health guidelines and doing your part to slow the spread of the virus. As UC President Drake announced earlier this month, we very much hope to be able to welcome many of you back to campus this fall.
