Visiting Undergraduates

View of Los Angeles from LMU's Bluff


The Visiting Student Program supports students who wish to pursue part-time undergraduate-level academic work during the summer term outside of a university degree program. Visiting Students may apply to take up to eight units at the same time at LMU. Please note that enrollment as a Visiting Student is approved on a summer-by-summer basis and does not imply admission to candidacy for a degree.

Which Courses May I Take?

Begin your search for summer session courses by using our online course search tool. Please be sure to select "Summer 2023 Session I" or "Summer 2023 Session II" to view available undergraduate courses.  

  • Visiting Students may take a maximum of eight units in any one session.

Taking a Course for Credit

Visiting Students must meet all the course requirements specified by the course instructor.
