Visiting Student Course Enrollment

Summer Session course enrollment opens May 1 for registered students. 

Guidance on selecting courses:

Math Preparation Assessment

Some timely preparation can help you get your UCSC experience off to a great start. UCSC uses the online preparation and placement system ALEKS to assess students' current math skills and knowledge. Accurate assessment will help you enroll in a UCSC math course that will be challenging, but not overwhelming

Steps to Enroll:

Once you have successfully completed all steps to register for Summer Session you may continue on to course enrollment. You will receive an e-mail with your CruzID and instructions to set up your Gold Password. You will need both of these to log on to your MyUCSC Student Portal where you can enroll in classes just for the summer. Note that you will not be able to enroll in courses until you receive your login information after registering (this may take up to two weeks):

Step 1: Browse courses through Class Search, making sure to select 2017 Summer in the search terms. (Enrollment begins May 1st)

Step 2: Add courses to your shopping cart.

Step 3: Finish the steps to enroll via My Student Center on your MyUCSC portal. If you have questions, follow these directions on how to enroll in a course.

Please Remember:

  • If you cannot attend a course you're enrolled in, you MUST DROP yourself. Instructors do not drop students in summer session. If you do not drop yourself from a course you will be responsible for paying the tuition for it.
  • There is a non-refundable $50 cancellation fee if you enroll in summer session courses at any time but decide to drop them all. 
  • Instructors may be contacting you via your UCSC gmail. You can log on to this via your MyUCSC portal, or through gmail once you are sent your CruzID Blue and CruzID Gold login information. To login, use your cruzID@gmail.com and your Cruz ID Blue password. This is especially important if you are in an online course, as your access information for the class will be sent to you through this.
