Dropping Courses

Required Courses: Each Travel Study program consists of a required course curriculum. Students are automatically enrolled in this curriculum. These courses are mandatory and cannot be dropped. Students are responsible for ensuring they do not  already have credit for the mandatory program courses (financial aid cannot be awarded for duplicate credit). Substitutions for required courses may be requested, pending faculty approval.  Please visit Academics for additional academic policy information.

Optional Courses: Optional courses may be dropped through MyUCLA by August 30, 2024 for no penalty. After August 30, optional courses may be dropped for no refund until September 13, 2024, the last day of Summer Session C.

More information about a program’s required and optional courses can be found on each program’s webpage.


Travel Study students are enrolled in UCLA courses by the International Education Office. ALL courses must be taken for a letter grade. Auditing is not allowed for Travel Study program courses. Students are required to be in good academic standing (minimum 2.0 term GPA and cumulative GPA of 2.0 or above) during the spring quarter proceeding participation in a Travel Study program. Failure to do so may result in withdrawal from the program and cancellation of your course enrollment.

Grades for all UC students will automatically transfer to their UC transcript in the fall.

Non-UC students will need to request a transcript for transfer of courses to their home institution. Please visit MyUCLA for information on obtaining a UCLA transcript.


Grades should be available via MyUCLA after October 1. To request an official transcript, visit MyUCLA.

  • UCLA Students: Summer grades are usually posted to your regular transcript when fall grades are processed.
  • Other UC Students: Courses and grades will transfer automatically during the month of October. It varies by UC campus when courses and grades will be posted to the regular transcript.
  • Non-UC Students: Official hard copy transcripts are usually available after October 1.
