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

Undergraduate students can make changes to the study list through Friday of the second week of the term without a fee. After Friday of the second week, when the study list becomes official, 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.

For late enrollment transactions after published deadlines, students should contact their respective counseling units for petition and procedures.
