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.

Enrolling in Summer Sessions Classes

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. 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 1 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:

  1. Go to R'Web.
  2. Enter your NetID and password.
  3. Under the Self-Service section, click on the "Registration" icon.
  4. Select "Register for Classes".
  5. Under Terms Open for Registration, select "Summer 2019".
  6. You will now reach the class search page. The next step depends on whether or not you need to search for classes (Step 6A) or if you already know the CRN (Course Reference Number) (Step 6B).
    6A. If you do not know the CRN's for the classes you wish to enroll in: 6B. If you already know the CRN's for the classes you wish to enroll in:

    Select the "Find Classes" tab to browse through and enroll in classes.

    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. You will then need to select "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.

    • Please 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 enrollment successfully; otherwise, an error will occur.
    • If you get an error, you will not be able to enroll in the class until you resolve that error. For example, if you get a message that says the classes you have attempted to enroll in are in time conflict, you will need to adjust your schedule so that your classes 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:

    Select 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 the link that says "+Add Another CRN". After you have finished entering the CRN's, select "Add to Summary".

    The Summary section should now list your classes. Verify that these are the classes you intended to add. Please note that you are not enrolled 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".

    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.
