Tuition and Fees
Regular Summer Session tuition for all students (in-state, out-of-state, international) is $273 per credit. Academy students are offered a 25% discount on tuition (woohoo!), which reduces the per credit cost to $204.75 (academy students must remain enrolled in the required 2-credit KRSG 25 course to receive this discount).
$204.75 per credit x 7 credits = $1,433.25 for Tuition
All Summer Session and Summer Academy students who take classes on-campus over the summer are charged a required $287 campus fee. This fee gives students unlimited access to libraries, computer labs, the fitness center, pool, courts, metro buses, bike shuttles... the whole campus is yours!
$287 Campus Fee + $1,433.25 Tuition = $1,720.25 for Tuition and Fees
Books and supplies vary by what you take. Some art classes and science labs have small 'materials fees'. Some classes have more than 5 credits, like sciences with required labs, or PSYC 100. If you take more than 7 credits, your tuition (and aid) will increase accordingly.
Housing and Dining Costs
For transfer students who would like to live on campus over the summer, Summer Academy housing is offered at a significantly discounted rate in comparison to fall, winter, and spring quarters with options ranging from a single (a room to yourself) to a quad room (a room with 3 roommates). Housing and dining rates vary depending on room type, please review the Summer Academy Housing for more information.
- Students are required to have health insurance. You will be signed up for the UCSC health insurance (called UCSHIP) for $322.99 for the summer.
- If you already have health insurance, you can waive UC SHIP by providing proof that your insurance meets the UC requirements.
