Summer Sessions

UCR Students 

What Are Your Goals As A Student?

Are you looking to

  • get ahead in school
  • see the world
  • catch up on your studies
  • start a different major
  • graduate sooner?

The accelerated pace of our summer courses allows you to complete classes quickly, while still covering the same in-depth material presented throughout the fall, winter and spring quarters.

Key Benefits:

  1. Complete your degree on time
  2. Get into high demand classes
  3. Complete prerequisites, general education or upper division requirements
  4. Enjoy a relaxed campus and smaller classes

Current UCR Students:

You are considered an active UCR student if you are enrolled in the spring quarter and you are continuing in the fall quarter, or if you are enrolled in the spring quarter and are planning to graduate in Summer 2018.

You may choose your classes just like during the regular year and go directly to R'Web to register for courses beginning April 2.
Please check your R'Web account (beginning March 1st) to see your assigned Time Ticket. 

  • Incoming Freshmen, Transfers and Readmits for Fall 2018

If you have  been admitted to the UCR campus for the fall quarter as either a freshman or a transfer student, you should be able to enroll in courses through R'Web.

If you have officially applied for readmission to UCR and have been readmitted for the fall quarter, you will still need to submit the online application to be admitted for the summer.

If you are a high school senior who has already been admitted to UCR for the upcoming fall quarter and need to take English or Math courses, the Highlander Early Start Academy may help you get a head start on your collegiate career.

  • Dismissed UCR Students

In order to apply credit and grade points earned in the summer sessions toward a degree, UCR students who have been academically dismissed need specific approval from their academic advisor or the Dean of the college they wish to be readmitted to.

Please complete the online application. Once the Summer Sessions office has processed your application, you will receive an email instructing you to see an academic advisor. If your advisor is agreeable to your summer plans, they will give you permission to register. You may then go to R'Web to enroll. Dismissed students will be considered visiting students for the summer.

  • Inactive (not dismissed, not graduated) UCR Students

If you were a regularly enrolled UCR student but you stopped attending for a reason other than academic dismissal or graduation, you are likely an inactive student. If you wish to graduate in Summer 2018 or readmit to Fall 2018, you do not need to submit the Summer Sessions Application. Instead, you will need to speak to someone in your college office to learn how to enroll in courses. 

If you are inactive and plan to readmit to UCR in Winter 2019 or later, or you never plan to readmit to UCR, and you wish to take classes in Summer 2018, you must submit the Summer Sessions Application. Once your application has been processed, you will be sent an email with further instructions.
