Achieve Your Goals
Taking classes this summer can help you earn your degree on time, or even early! You can also use Summer Sessions classes to complete a minor, improve your GPA, complete an internship or study abroad later.
In Summer Sessions, you get to enjoy all the same benefits your tuition and fees provide like time at the SRC pool, free movie screenings from ASPB and free RTA bus rides with your R'Card. Just like the rest of the year, UCR offers financial aid to help qualified students pay for their Summer Sessions classes — be sure to have all of your forms in by the deadlines!
You can afford to take classes this summer! Read on to learn how.
You may also need to pay these additional fees for your Summer Sessions classes:

Some departments charge Course Materials and Services Fees for specific classes. These fees cover the cost of the course materials and supplies you will use, special costs associated with the use of university-owned equipment, or the cost of other services that provide an educational benefit to you.
Single Document Fee
Beginning in Fall 2018, UCR has implemented a one-time Single Document Fee, which covers the cost of transcripts, enrollment verifications, and more.
