You pay for 8!
Current UCR undergraduates and active visiting undergraduates from other UC campuses only pay the per-unit fee for the first eight units.
This means that summer is an affordable option, including Pell and UCR grants available for qualified students.
Please note that Summer Sessions will not drop students from unpaid enrollments! If you enroll in a course and you later decide you don't want it, it is your responsibility to drop the course by the published drop deadline as listed at Dates & Deadlines. If you enroll in a course and you do not drop it by the published deadline, you will be billed for the course and you will receive a grade.
You may also need to pay these additional fees for your Summer Sessions classes:
Course Materials and Services Fee
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
The Single Document Fee is a one-time fee that covers the cost of transcripts, enrollment verifications, and more. First-time summer-only visitors and incoming Fall 2023 admits who opt to take Summer 2023 courses will be charged $50. For more information about the Single Document Fee, please visit the Registrar’s website .
