Before the first day of instruction, students who have paid fees but do not plan to attend for a term may cancel registration by submitting a Cancellation of Registration request. The term to be cancelled and reason for cancellation must be included. This process also initiates the refund process.
New students receive a 100 percent refund except for the nonrefundable acceptance of admission fee and a cancellation of registration service fee. Fees paid by new dentistry, JD, and SJD students are refunded except for nonrefundable acceptance of admission deposits. All other students receive a 100 percent refund except for a cancellation of registration service fee.
Students who purchased the University of California Student Health Insurance Plan (UCSHIP), cancel registration, and receive a 100 percent refund lose all UCSHIP coverage and benefits for the term.
New students who cancel registration must file a new application for admission if they wish to return to UCLA. Admission is not guaranteed.
Continuing students who have not paid fees and do not plan to attend for a term must declare nonattendance through MyUCLA.
Please note, the Cancellation of Registration PDF form remains available for use.
