Independent Study Units
Undergraduates may enroll in a maximum of eight units of 195-199 courses per term. PLEASE NOTE: After completing 32 units of 195-199 credit on a letter grade basis, students must take any additional 195-199 courses on a Passed/Not Passed basis.
Most Independent field study courses (195) must be taken on a Passed/Not Passed basis. Students should check with their major department for any restrictions and limitations on 195 courses.
Students with an outstanding Incomplete grade in a 195-199 course may not register for another 195-199 course until the Incomplete grade is removed.
See departmental listings and individual course descriptions for specific requisites and credit limitations.
Students may study abroad through a variety of different programs. Students may study abroad through UCLA’s Summer Travel Programs , in which UCLA faculty lead a class of students abroad and offer courses that receive full academic credit. In addition, Financial Aid may be used for these programs if students are eligible. Registration usually begins in mid-November, and students may inquire at UCLA Summer Sessions at 1131 Murphy Hall if they have any questions.
UCLA also offers many opportunities through the Education Abroad Program (EAP) which is sponsored by the University of California system and offers more than 140 programs in more than 30 countries. Exchange students can find programs to suit their needs, studying abroad for a summer, semester or year and can also use Financial Aid if eligible. Questions should be directed to the International Education Office at 1332 Murphy Hall.
Students may also find countless opportunities through other institutions and agencies not sponsored by UCLA or the University of California. Although there is no guarantee that courses will be transferrable, students may find these programs better suit their needs. Students should file a Planned Academic Leave so that they automatically receive enrollment appointments for the term of their return, and consult with the International Education Office 1332 Murphy Hall if they have any questions.
