The College Summer Institute is an academic program that combines coursework, academic support services, your New Student Session, and community-building in one experience. If you choose to participate in CSI, you will be billed for the entire fee, which includes your courses and all academic programs (including New Student Session).
For many students, the cost of CSI actually represents a savings. The program fee is based on the number of units of coursework taken. Below you will find an itemized breakdown of costs for the College Summer Institute.
CSI is a program that is eligible for Financial Aid to qualified students. You can find out more on the Financial Aid Web site . [Students must apply for “UCLA Summer Sessions” award period on MyUCLA ]
