Continue on Your Path to Success in Summer Sessions

There are so many benefits to taking classes at UCR during the summer. You can fulfill prerequisites and major requirements. You can earn units toward a minor. You can earn the units you need to get your degree on time or even graduate early. You can improve your GPA. With Summer Sessions, you can accomplish all that with session options that work with your schedule!

Ready to enroll? The steps you take to enroll in Summer Sessions classes will vary depending on if you are a current UCR student, a student visiting this summer from another college or university, a student not currently enrolled in college, or an international student. Read on to find the category you best fit. If you are still not sure what category you belong to or have additional enrollment questions, contact the Summer Sessions office at summer@ucr.edu or (951) 827-3044. You can also chat with Summer Sessions in person at the HUB Info Desk starting in mid-March.

Determine If You Need to Apply

Select the category below that best describes you to see if you need to submit an application.
Keep in mind: if you are not a current UCR student but have previously taken classes at UCR or submitted an application, your UCR student ID number and NetID will stay the same and you may already have access to R'Web; however, course registration will be blocked until you submit a summer application and the Summer Sessions office updates your status to active. 

Find the Classes You Need This Summer

Beginning March 2, you can check out the full schedule of summer classes online through R'Web and classes.ucr.edu. Like with all other quarters, the schedule of classes is subject to change, so please check the schedule regularly for class updates.
Summer classes are just like the classes offered the rest of the year, with some special benefits. Thanks to reduced unit requirements in the summer, you can take the time to focus on core courses for your major or minor. With different session dates available, you can take summer classes in the timeframe that works best for you. You will enroll for your summer classes in R'Web.

Soon after you enroll, you should be granted access to iLearn. You can access iLearn via R'Web by selecting the iLearn icon in the self-service window. If you have issues accessing iLearn, please visit iLearn Support for Students or email helpdesk@student.ucr.edu

Clear Prerequisites

If you are a visiting (non-UCR) student and you are interested in enrolling in a summer course that has prerequisites, you will likely encounter an enrollment error that will prevent you from enrolling in that course. If you have completed coursework at your home institution that you believe fulfills the prerequisite for a summer course here at UCR, please contact the academic department's contact to get permission to enroll. At a minimum, you will need to provide your UCR student ID number and the name(s) of the class(es) you are interested in enrolling in. Please keep in mind that the department may also request an official or unofficial transcript.

Enroll on R'Web

All Summer Sessions students enroll for classes in R'Web, UCR's student portal. You will need a NetID and a password to log into R'Web.

Summer enrollment is scheduled to begin April 1, 2020. UCR seniors will be the first group to enroll. Enrollment will then open in stages to allow juniors to enroll, then sophomores, 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 2, 2020 for your assigned time ticket to see when you can enroll in Summer Sessions classes. When it's time for you to enroll in classes, you'll follow these steps:

  • Go to R'Web. 
  • Enter your NetID and password. 
  • Under the Self-Service section, click on the Registration icon. 
  • Select Register for Classes. 
  • Under Terms Open for Registration, select Summer 2020 (available March 2, 2020). 
  • You will now reach the course search page. The next step depends on whether or not you need to search for classes, or if you already know the CRN's (Course Reference Number). Click on the options below for additional steps. 
  • I don't know the CRN's for the classes I want to enroll in.
    • Select the "Find Classes" tab to browse through the Summer 2020 schedule of classes. Enter your search criteria, e.g., Subject and Course Number, Subject, etc., and press Search.  
    • Once you have found a class that you are interested in, click Add. This will add the class to your Summary. You are not enrolled just yet--notice that the Status column says "pending." 
    • When you are ready to enroll, go to the Action column in your summary and select Add from the dropdown box for each class you wish to enroll in. 
    • Click Submit
    • To verify that your enrollment was successful, check the Status Column for each class that you attempted to enroll in. If the status now says Registered, you have successfully enrolled.

    ​​​​​​Keep in mind...

    You will need to add all linked sections, such as lectures, discussions, labs, etc., at the same time to complete your registration successfully; otherwise, an error will occur.

    If you get an error, you will not be able to enroll in the course until you resolve that error. For example, if you get a message that says the courses you have attempted to enroll in are in time conflict, you will need to adjust your schedule so that your courses are not in time conflict with each other.

    If you get an error message that says you have not met the prerequisite even though you believe you have:

    If R'Web won't let you enroll in a course even though you are successfully enrolled in the prerequisite in another session (for example, if you enrolled successfully in SPN 001  in session A but are getting an error for SPN 002 in session B), please contact the Summer Sessions office at summer@ucr.edu so we can help you get enrolled. 

  • I know the CRN's for the courses I want to enroll in.
    • Click on the "Enter CRNs" tab to bypass the search function and enroll in classes directly.
    • In the text box, enter the five digit CRN. If you wish to add more than one at a time, click on +Add Another CRN. After you have finished entering the CRNs, select Add to Summary.
    • The Summary section should now list your courses. Verify that these are the courses you intended to add. Please note that you are not registered just yet--notice that the status shows pending.
    • When you are ready to enroll, go to the Action column in your Summary, and select Add from the dropdown box for each class you wish to enroll in. You will then need to select Submit. If the status now says Registered, you have successfully enrolled.

    Keep in mind...

    that you will need to add all linked sections, such as lectures, discussions, labs, etc., at the same time to complete your registration successfully.; otherwise, an error will occur.

Payment

If you enroll in courses between April 1st and July 15th, your fees will be due in full by July 15th, 2020. If you enroll in courses between July 16th and August 14th, your fees will be due in full on August 14th. Late payments may result in a one-time $100 penalty. The Deferred Payment Plan is not available for Summer Sessions enrollments.

Summer Sessions will no longer drop students from unpaid courses. 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. 

Failure to pay your summer fees in full may negatively impact your fall course schedule. 


Payment Methods
  • In Person
    Pay with cash, check or money order in person at the Cashier's office, located on the first floor of the Student Services Building, Monday-Friday 9am-12pm and 1-3pm. No credit card payments can be accepted at the Cashier's office.
  • Online
    You may pay with e-check (checking account) or a credit card (American Express, Discover Card, Master Card or Visa). Online payments can be made until 9 p.m. A nonrefundable service fee will be charged.
  • Financial Aid
    Financial aid is available for qualifying UCR students. If you receive a financial aid award for the summer, it may cover some or all of your tuition. Students receiving financial aid from another campus or another source must pay their fees and arrange to be reimbursed by their campus or other source when their aid is disbursed.

Refunds

Refunds may apply when you drop a course through R'Web within the allowed time frame. Please refer to the Dates & Deadlines page for refund deadlines for each specific session.

If you paid by credit card and are entitled to a refund, your credit card will be credited. If you paid by check, cash, money order or cashier's check, you will receive a check from Student Business Services. Please allow two to three weeks for processing from the time you officially drop the course on R'Web. Checks will be mailed to the address listed on your R'Web profile.

Course lab fees, materials fees, late fees and the online payment convenience fee are nonrefundable.
