Summer Sessions


Summer 2014 online application now available!

UC Riverside's Summer Sessions is not your ordinary summer school. We combine over 600 available courses—including many high-demand classes—with a relaxed campus atmosphere and a convenient class schedule.

Why attend UCR's Summer Sessions?

  • Learn in a relaxed, fun atmosphere
  • Get ahead by taking prerequisites or intensive classes
  • Smaller class size means more opportunity for interaction with faculty
  • UCR's three to seven week sessions help you get through the class in less time than the traditional 10-week quarter
  • Classes are identical in focus and content to those taught in the rest of the year and units are transferable to most four-year universities, including all UC's.
  • Financial Aid is available to continuing UCR students
