UCR is working to make your goals affordable!

Did the pandemic impact your studies? UCR wants to help! 
We've made summer courses more affordable by capping the summer per-unit fees[1] at 8 units!
Do you want to enroll in 12 units, or even 16? No problem—you[2] will only pay for 8!

Who qualifies for the 8-unit fee cap:

  • Current UCR undergraduate students
  • Visiting active UC undergraduate students

Current UCR and visiting active [3] UC undergraduate students will only be charged the summer per-unit fee for the first 8 units enrolled. Specific course material and other campus fees based on registration will still apply. 

How it works:

First, register for classes! It does not matter which session the course is in or if the courses are being offered online or in-person. You can even enroll in multiple sessions!

Then, as long as you qualify and are registered for more than 8 units, you will only be charged the summer per-unit fee for the first 8 units! Please keep in mind that the mandatory campus fees, course material fees, and other fees will be charged based on your overall course enrollment. 

For more details about the summer fees, check the Cost & Aid section of our website. Information about financial aid will be made available soon. 

[1]The per-unit fee of $279 will be charged for the first 8 units enrolled. After 8 units, the per-unit fee will not apply. However, the mandatory Student Technology Fee ($4) is not subject to the 8-unit fee cap and will be charged for each unit enrolled. Course material fees will be charged and are not subject to the 8-unit fee cap. 

[2]The per-unit fee cap applies only to active UCR undergraduate students and UC undergraduate students. The 8-unit fee cap does not apply to UCR graduate students, visiting UC graduates students , non-UC visiting undergraduates or non-UC visiting graduate students.  

[3]To be considered an active visiting UC undergrad, students must 1) currently attend another UC campus as an undergraduate and 2) submit a visiting student application at Forms.
