All deadlines fall on Friday of the week(s) indicated.

Graduate students can add, drop, change grading basis, or change variable units through the end of the last day of instruction without transcript notation. After Friday of the second week of instruction, a fee is charged to make a change. Fees are per transaction and are assessed through BruinBill.

Fees for actions made through MyUCLA are automatically charged to BruinBill. Anything submitted or requested as an exception to a published deadline is subject to a penalty fee (included where applicable). Breakage is charged at replacement cost.
