Eligible employees may receive a 25% discount on the per unit fees for up to two courses per summer. The discount is limited to UCSD Staff only. Spouse and/or dependents are no longer eligible for the Summer Session discount.
To be eligible, Staff must have completed their six-month probation period and have a career appointment of 50% time or a casual appointment of 100%.
The non-refundable application fee, lab/computer fees, course material fee, and other fees are not included in the discount.
The employee discount can only be applied to course unit fees for open enrollment summer session courses. An open enrollment course is a course that is generally open to all students that meet the prerequisites. Special programs such as a Masters Degree program in Education Studies are not eligible.
Course and application fees are determined by whether or not you have enrolled in one of the two quarters prior to summer.
Example #1: Eligible employees who enroll during Summer Session for the first time and who are not admitted to the Fall Quarter are charged at the visiting student rate and are charged an application fee.
Example #2: Eligible employees who have enrolled in at least one of the two quarters prior to summer or who are admitted to the Fall Quarter are charged a the continuing student rate and are not charged an application fee.
All Staff requesting an employee discount must contact Summer Session at firstname.lastname@example.org and provide their PID, Staff ID number, supervisor's name and contact information and their HR representative's name and contact information. Summer Session staff will verify eligibility and contact the employee once the discount is applied. Please do not enroll in classes prior to obtaining the discount. This may result in a significant delay in the application of the discount to your account.
