Summer Sessions

2018 Summer Admission and Enrollment

Getting Enrolled, Step-by-Step 

Step 1: Apply

To take Summer Sessions classes, you must be an active UCR student (enrolled in Spring and continuing through Fall), an incoming freshman or transfer student, or a visiting (summer only) student.

  • Active UCR and newly admitted students: enroll directly through R'Web just as you would in any other term.
  • Visiting students: please submit our online application, which will be available March 1, 2018. Once your application is processed (allow three business days for processing), you will receive an e-mail confirmation with instructions on how to access R'Web  where you can enroll in your courses, view your charges, and make online payments.
  • Dismissed UCR students: you must also submit the online application, but you will also need to see an academic advisor in the college where you plan to re-admit before you will be allowed to enroll in any classes.
  • Inactive UCR students: if you attended UCR previously, but stopped attending for reasons other than graduating or being academically dismissed, you are an inactive student. How you enroll in summer classes depends on your future plans at the university:
    • If you plan to graduate in Summer 2018 or readmit for Fall 2018, you should not submit the Summer Sessions Application. Instead, you should seek advice from your college office. 
    • If you plan to readmit to UCR Winter 2019 or later, or you never plan to readmit to UCR because you have transferred to another institution, you must submit the Summer Sessions online application to enroll in summer courses. 

Step 2: View Available Courses

The Schedule of Classes will become available for Summer 2018 on March 1. Please check the Schedule of Classes frequently, as course information is subject to change. .

Step 3: Clear Prerequisites

Some courses have prerequisite requirements that must be cleared before you can enroll. Please see the Schedule of Classes to determine if your course has a prerequisite. If the course you are interested in does not have a prerequisite, you can skip this step.

If you are not a UC Riverside student but have completed coursework or have practical experience comparable to the listed prerequisites, please consult with the academic department offering the course prior to enrolling to see if the prerequisites can be waived. You can find the departments' contact information at It may be necessary to submit your transcripts. Please note that you will need a UCR student ID number before any prerequisites can be formally cleared. 

Step 4: Enroll through R'Web

Registration will open on April 2nd, 2018. UCR Seniors will be the first group to enroll. Enrollment will then open in stages to allow the juniors to enroll, then the sophomores, then freshman and incoming fall admits. Visiting, non-UCR students (including inactive and dismissed UCR students) will be the last group to enroll.

Please check R'Web beginning March 1st for your assigned Time TIcket to see when you can enroll.

Step 5: Pay

If you enroll in courses on or before June 15th, your course fees will be due in full by June 15th. If you enroll in courses after June 15th, your course fees will be due in full on the same day that you enroll (or the next available business day, if enrollment takes place on a weekend or holiday). Fees can be paid in person at the Cashier's office Monday-Friday, 9am-12pm and 1pm-3pm or online through R'Web until 9pm. Please be advised that failure to pay your fees in full by the applicable deadline may result in some or all of your classes being dropped. If you do not pay your fees and some or all of your courses are dropped, you are welcome to re-enroll if seats are still available in the course(s), or in alternative courses. Please be mindful, though, that you will have to pay your fees on the same day that you enroll; otherwise, you risk being dropped again.
