Make Summer Part of Your Plan for Success

Whatever your degree and career goals, summer sessions can help you achieve them! Take classes over the summer to meet prerequisites, fulfill major requirements, start a minor, boost your GPA, graduate on time or before.

Summer Sessions classes are offered in different session lengths that fit your schedule. You will get the same high-quality content from the same world-class professors that you do in the fall, winter or spring, just in a shorter timeframe. Summer Sessions class sizes are commonly smaller, which means you can get more facetime with your professors. Plus, financial aid is available for qualified students — just be sure to meet your deadlines and you could receive a grant to help pay for summer classes!

Current UCR students (including students admitted for fall 2019), students visiting from other college campuses, students not currently enrolled in college and international students can take summer classes at UCR. If you are a current UCR student, enroll for summer classes in R'Web starting in early April. All other students submit the Summer Sessions application beginning March 1.

Take the next step toward your degree in summer. Get started today!
