Why Summer Session?

  • Accelerate progress towards your degree
  • Enroll in courses that are difficult to enroll in during the fall, winter or spring quarters
  • Enhance your career prospects
  • Enrich your cultural and intellectual knowledge

FINANCIAL AID NOTE: UCSD students need a total of 6 units minimum throughout all Summer Sessions to be eligible for Summer Aid. Non UCSD students should contact their home campus Financial Aid Office. 

ACADEMIC RIGOR NOTE: The majority of classes in the summer are the same you will find during the 10 week academic year terms (Fall, Winter, Spring Quarters), and are taught in 5 week sessions.

IMPORTANT: If you drop a course, be sure to do the following: check the refund schedule, contact housing, and contact financial aid.
