UCLA Registrar's Office

Students who have paid fees but do not plan to enroll in classes for a term must cancel their registration to receive fee refunds.

Before the first day of instruction, students who have paid fees but do not plan to attend classes for a term may cancel their registration. The term to be cancelled and reason for cancellation must be included. The cancellation 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.
  • New dentistry, JD, and SJD students receive a 100 percent refund, 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 any classes for a term must declare nonattendance through MyUCLA.

Cancellation Process

Most students should use the online Cancel Registration Request.

Students in self-supporting programs must use the PDF Cancellation of Registration form.
